NEW: Board of Supervisors responds to Senate subpoena, continues to take stand against #azaudit Chairman Jack Sellers' Statement on Latest Senate Subpoena

Key points to AZ Senate: • Routers: No means no. • Passwords: Why demand passwords we don’t have for tabulators you’ve already returned?🤔 • Images: Can’t find what we provided in April? Check Ballot Pallet 46 or subfolder AFFIDAVITS on Lacie hard drive. Or the lab in Montana. We are also concerned about the treatment of the materials already provided.

Since January, Maricopa County has provided 2.1 million paper ballots, 385 Election Day tabulators, 9 central count tabulators, and 8+ terabytes of data including tabulator logs, voter records, clones of servers & images of early ballot affidavits, and ballot images.

Despite not agreeing with the Senate leadership’s choice of contractor, we complied and cooperated with all demands that were safe for constituents and supported by law.

AZ Senate leadership turned all of these items over to Cyber Ninjas & others, "enabling and enriching unvetted, unqualified, private companies with known biases who never should have touched federally-certified elections equipment or the people’s ballots."

Background on routers: 1) There are no routers connected to the tabulation system or Election Management System and there never have been.

2) Providing routers used for other county business (non-election) puts sensitive, confidential data belonging to Maricopa County citizens – including social security numbers and protected health information — at risk.

3) Routers are not needed to prove or disprove internet connectivity or hacking vulnerability. 4) The Senate audit team has had access to the items they would need to confirm Maricopa County’s tabulators were never connected to the internet & were not compromised.

5) The professional auditors hired by the County needed just two weeks with the machines and logs that we turned over to the Senate to make such a determination. The Senate’s contractors have had some of that data since January.
