JUSTICE DEPARTMENT: Arizona audit, recount of 2020 election may be a violation of federal law

New information has come out from The U.S. Department of Justice questioning the audit and recount that is being undergone in Maricopa County Arizona.

There are claims that the process may be “out of compliance” with the federal law. Pamela Karlan who is the principal deputy assistant attorney general for the Justice Department has since written a letter verbalizing her issues with the audit, there were two. One of the main problems is that the voting ballots and materials no longer belong to or are in the custody of elected officials.

Because of this they are going to have to find a way to retrieve them legally. It should also be noted that federal law requires said voting records to be stored safely by local officials. The second issue is apparently their plans for door to door canvassing can come off to some as intimidating, which is against federal law. One cannot intimidate an individual into voting for a certain person. And it is feared that walking door to door and asking individuals could perhaps be a form of that [NPR].
