Republicans in Spokane County, Washington, have asked for an audit of the 2020 presidential election, according to a report from Just the News.
The report added the audit request came in a petition presented to county commissioners by Spokane County GOP State Committeeman Matt Hawkins. The probe would specifically look at the election processes in Spokane County, as well as the tabulation machines.
In June, The Center Square reported that a citizen watchdog group had failed to convince Spokane County to perform an audit of the 2020 presidential election. A member of the Election Integrity Committee under the umbrella of the Spokane Republican Party, Dennis Hawkhurst, pointed out in Center Square’s article that there were a reported 353,926 registered voters in 2020 but 382,560 ballots.
