Maricopa County election officials in Arizona's most populous region
have begun a hand count audit, officials announced late Wednesday.
"The hand count audit has begun," the county’s election department said
on Twitter. "Republican, Democratic, and Libertarian party chairs drew
the races and ballots that hand count audit boards will review
"This is an important step in ensuring the accuracy of the 2022 General Election results," they added.
Fox News could not immediately reach election officials for comment on
the audit, but according to information provided on Arizona secretary
of state website, an audit is conducted using a sample of ballots to
test the accuracy of the tabulation equipment.
Voters in Arizona are still awaiting results of the crucial U.S. Senate
and governor's races, and several closely watched U.S. House races. The secretary of state's office estimates that Maricopa County, the state's
most populous county, has around 400,000 uncounted ballots.
