Arizona Republic reporter catches mistake in ballot audit

Reporter Jen Fifield from the Arizona Republic was an observer at the Phoenix Coliseum during her visit for the recount of ballots from last year’s presidential election. Fifield witnessed and saw that the auditors were using blue pens rather than red. For blue ink is read by the ballot counting machines and can be easily changed and tampered with. Fifield was quick to call this out and was eventually asked to leave.

There’s a hearing set for Apr. 27 about the ballot audits that will provide more information in what’s been happening. Fifield was closely watched while she was an observer. Which is why she eventually ended her Twitter thread by informing everyone she was not allowed to report anything until after her shift. They told her that she was only allowed to observe during her visit not report. Fifield responds that, “I’m a reporter all the time, even when I’m an observer.”

Fifield saw a number of alarming things while she was there.
