Duplicated, damaged ballots unmatchable in AZ audit

Just The NewsFormer Secretary of State Ken Bennett's team uncovered the error just a few days ago, he told Senate President Karen Fann and Judicial Committee Chair Warren Petersen. Each damaged ballot and its associated duplicate ballot are supposed to have the same serial number to ensure they are only counted once.

But he has found many batches of damaged ballots without the serial numbers that are on the duplicates, violating state law. "We are struggling as to how we're going to be able to match up" those damaged and duplicated ballots, Bennett said.

The purpose of the serial numbers is not "to ensure they are only counted once", it's so the the damaged ballots can be matched with the duplicate ballots and checked to ensure the selections made on the original ballot are faithfully duplicated.
