AZ Secretary of State Says Voting Machines May Have Been Compromised by GOP-Backed Auditors

HeadlineMay 21, 2021

Arizona’s secretary of state is advising Maricopa County officials to replace all voting machines that were turned over to a private company hired by Republicans to conduct a fourth audit of the 2020 election. The recount is being overseen by Cyber Ninjas, a company with no record of working in election security — and whose CEO has promoted conspiracy theories claiming the election was stolen. Secretary of State Katie Hobbs cited “grave concerns regarding the security and integrity” of hundreds of voting machines that were in Cyber Ninja custody with no election official or observer present.
