Texas Announces Election Audit in Four Counties — Democrats Melt Down
Comes after former President Trump asked Gov. Greg Abbott to launch a statewide audit of the 2020 election.
Notably, Arizona’s 2020 audit found thousands of duplicate ballots and other major election-changing voter discrepancies in Maricopa County.
The Texas Secretary of State’s Office announced the state will conduct a forensic audit of the 2020 presidential election in four counties.
The audit will focus on Houston, Dallas, Tarrant, and Collin counties — the two largest Democrat and two largest Republican counties in the state.
“Under existing Texas laws, the Secretary of State has the authority to conduct a full and comprehensive forensic audit of any election and has already begun the process in Texas’ two largest Democrat counties and two largest Republican counties—Dallas, Harris, Tarrant, and Collin—for the 2020 election. We anticipate the Legislature will provide funds for this purpose,” the Office said in a statement.
Though Trump won Texas last year by 5.5 percentage points, the former president wrote a letter to Gov. Greg Abbott (R) on Thursday requesting a statewide audit to “answer big questions” about the 2020 election.
“Despite my big win in Texas, I hear Texans want an election audit! You know your fellow Texans have big questions about the November 2020 Election,” Trump said in a statement.
