This won’t make the Fake News media.

According to Arizona audit Senate Liaison Ken Bennett, the Arizona audit found thousands of duplicate ballots that didn’t have serial numbers.

From Just The News:

A state official in Arizona on Thursday said the state Senate’s audit of Maricopa County’s 2020 election results revealed “potentially thousands” of missing serial numbers on ballot copies that had been duplicated from damaged originals.

In the state Senate hearing on Thursday, Senate Liaison Ken Bennett described the process by which election workers duplicate a ballot. “If a ballot gets damaged and has to be sent to duplication, there is a very specific process in the [state] elections procedure manual,” he said. That process involves applying matching serial numbers to both original and duplicated ballots.

“We found, I would have to say, thousands of duplicate ballots where those serial numbers are not on them,” he said. “And so it has created great difficulty to try to match up a duplicated ballot to its duplicate.”

Bennett said many serial numbers were applied with a “dot-matrix printer” atop border lines around the ballot, a mixup which “made for some very difficult matching of duplicated ballots and their duplicates.”

“One of the most important things you need to do when you duplicate ballots is reflect the serial number on [the two ballots] so that you can do two main things,” he said. “One, make sure you have one for every one of the other and two, make sure that you can look at the votes reflected on the duplicated ballot to make sure they reflected those correctly from the ballot that was damaged and was duplicated.”
