PHOENIX – On Tuesday, Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Chairman Clint Hickman issued a letter asserting that “the evidence overwhelmingly shows” the county’s election results were accurate.

“It is time to dial back the rhetoric, rumors, and false claims,” wrote Hickman. “No matter how you voted, this election was administered with integrity, transparency and in accordance with state laws.”

Hickman specifically addressed concerns with the county’s use of the Dominion equipment and software used in the tabulation process.

“The Dominion tabulation equipment was vetted by a bipartisan, ‘Equipment Certification Advisory Committee’ before the contract was finalized,” wrote Hickman. He noted that the “equipment met mandatory requirements during logic and accuracy testing before the Presidential Preference Election, the Primary Election and the General Election.”

Dominion Voting Systems Corp., is at the center of claims made by President Trump that the election was “rigged.” To date, the Trump campaign has not presented any evidence that the equipment or software is responsible for any irregularities. However, attorney Sidney Powell has promised to provide evidence of fraud and manipulation that occurred through the system in numerous states.

Currently the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors are embroiled in two lawsuits involving claims of election irregularities and voter disenfranchisement, and Republican lawmakers have called for a hand count audit of all ballots cast on Election Day.

Also on Tuesday, Pima County Board of Supervisors Ally Miller and Steve Christy refused to approve a canvas of Pima County’s election results citing concerns about the allegations against Maricopa County. The Mohave County Board of Supervisors has also postponed approving their election results due to the controversy.

Despite the wide-spread concerns, the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors is expected to formally approve the election results this week.

Hickman’s letter has earned praise from Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, a Democrat, who has referred to Trump supporters in the past as “neo-Nazis.”
