Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has approved the August 28, 2018 Primary Election results but has requested an internal audit and external review related to the planning and execution of the Primary Election and Election Day operations.
The audit will include a look at:
- Primary Election Day readiness
- Planning that went into Primary Election Day
- Allocation of Resources
- Handling of complaints
- Voter check-in process
The Board of Supervisors has approved $200,000 to contract an outside firm to review issues surrounding the Primary Election. This firm will allow for another layer of independence, and an additional level of expertise.
Both the internal and external reviews will result in real-time recommendations to improve election processes prior to the general election.
