The chairwoman of the Arizona Republican party, Kelli Ward, announced Wednesday that her party has completed the inspection of a sample of duplicate ballots in the state, and found that two ballots cast for Trump were altered.
A duplicate ballot is a ballot that’s either damaged or is unable to be read by the tabulation machine. Election workers then have to duplicate the original ballot onto another ballot to be processed by the machine.
A local court had granted the inspection as a part of the election petition filed by Ward. The sample of 100 duplicate ballots were selected at random by elections officials.
According to the chairwoman, one of the original ballots showed that the person voted for President Trump, but the duplicated copy switched the vote to Democratic nominee Joe Biden. Another original ballot showed the person voted for Trump, but the duplicate copy was voided.
