AZ audit report likely released to the public this week

Gateway PunditAudit spokesman Randy Pullen said that the machine recount numbers were finally delivered last Thursday to the audit team in Arizona.

Pullen expects that the final audit report will be made available to the public by the end of the month.

This report will show the audit team’s ballot count versus the county’s count, batch discrepancies, and other ballot discrepancies found in the three-layered forensic analysis of the ballots.

The auditors have finally received images of the mail-in ballot envelopes and they will shortly begin the envelope analysis phase of the audit shortly.

For those who were expecting it Friday, they presumably delivered a preliminary report to the Senate, which has said it will check it over and then release it.

The ballot envelope images should allow for signature verification of the ballot envelopes, which will tell us how many of those ballots would have been rejected if the normal rules had been followed.

Some other interesting information has come out. Jovan Pulitzer revealed his forensic process is looking for printer identification codes. Unlike ballot watermarks, which may or may not exist, the printer identification codes do; they aren't well known but occasionally show up in the news. I don't know enough of the details to say if they will allow invalid ballots to be detected, but if the codes can be read, the vast majority should be identified as being from a single major printer, I would expect.

It will be interesting to see what can be learned.
