Winners from the November polls were confirmed through a draft report from a company that has done the controversial review, Maricopa County, Arizona said on Thursday.
In a tweet, the county said that the “draft report from Cyber Ninjas confirms the county’s canvass of the 2020 General Election was accurate and the candidates certified as the winners did, in fact, win.”
Based in Florida, Cyber Ninjas is a cybersecurity body that was in the front line of the Republicans’ effort to review the presidential polls last year in Arizona.
The audit came about following the push of Arizona Republican lawmakers to deny the win of US President Joe Biden in November.
The county and the state have also become the focus of those who baselessly claim that Donald Trump’s win from the election was stolen.
The draft, however, was not released by the county.
According to KPNX of Phoenix, NBC’s affiliate, Biden’s win margin by 360 votes was backed by the secured copy of the review and the report.
No response was given yet by the Republican Arizona Senate President Karen Fann, who has requested the election audit. “We will all find out tomorrow,” became her only statement, referring to the contents of the report, as she addressed KPNX.
The release of the findings in the state Senate is set for Friday.
According to Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Chairman Jack Sellers, the board would probably be alleged of non-cooperation or “failing to fill holes in the knowledge of the Senate’s chosen contractor,” CNBC reported.
“How could we cooperate with an inquiry that was led by people who have no idea how to run any election, let alone one in the second largest voting district in the United States?” he raised.
