The Arizona Senate’s 2020 election audit that was halted due to a judge’s court order can proceed as scheduled for this weekend. The Arizona Democratic Party failed to post a $1 million bond the judge required to cover the expenses that the Senate would wrongfully accrue due to the halt.
On Friday afternoon, right as the scheduled election audit for 2.1 million ballots was set to commence, the Democrats succeeded in temporarily getting the judge to pause the proceedings until Monday morning.
“Superior Court Judge Christopher Coury said he wants to ensure the recount fully complies with Arizona law and asked for more information by Monday morning on the audit’s policies and procedures,” AZ Central reported.
“If Gallardo or the Democratic Party post a $1 million bond, the audit will be paused at 5 p.m.,” the report cited the judge.
“I do not want to micromanage and it is not the posture of this court to micromanage or even to manage the process by which another branch of government, the Legislature, the Arizona state senate proceeds,” Coury added.
“However, it is the province of the court to ensure voter information and those constitutional protections are held sacrosanct and that also includes the protection of ballots under Arizona law.”
Kelli Ward and other Arizona Republicans cheered on the recent development.

The judge’s decision came after the Democrats filed a court case to put a halt to the election audit.
