The six-week-long hand auditing ballots of the 4th most populous county in the US will still require further procedures to be screened through before a conclusion is reviewed.
"The counting will be done by the end of this week and then the resources will shift to the paper evaluation," Senate audit liaison Ken Bennett said on Tuesday, June 6. "That may still take most of the rest of this month."
This was not the initial date the process was expected to finish, which was previously thought to be in mid-May following a contract deadline between the GOP-led Senate and Wake TSI.
The Cyber Ninja firm was called on to finish the remainder of the ballots in the Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Phoenix, which led to the extended due time.
