Pinal County has released its report detailing why 507 additional ballots were tallied in the statewide recount results released today. The report describes the various discrepancies and concludes as follows:
After performing reconciliation of ballots cast, accounting for Fed only and
provisional ballots, reviewing multiple hours of video footage, speaking with a
number of inspectors and marshals, physically hand counting the number of ballots
in a ballot box and reconciling them with the machine results, and consulting with
ES&S, we believe our recount to be accurate and the discrepancies between the
recount and the canvass were the results of human error. We experienced an error
rate of .3% with a consistency rate of 99.7%.
