Arizona County seeks reimbursement for new voting machines

Maricopa County’s Board of Election Supervisors is calling for the Arizona Senate to reimburse it for the $2.8 million cost of replacing vote-counting machines. Seeking to investigate unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud in the 2020 election, Republicans in the Arizona Senate had arranged for the machines to be inspected by an organization that was not certified to handle the election equipment. In response to the demands from Maricopa County, the Arizona Senate President has argued that the machines were not damaged or tampered with during the unauthorized inspection.
