Boxes of ballots at “The Madhouse on McDowell”/MaricopaCounty.gov
By Lacey Latch | Arizona Republic
After months of counting, scanning, recounting and general controversy, the 2.1 million ballots cast by Maricopa County voters returned to the control of county elections officials on Thursday.
Workers at the Arizona State Fairgrounds loaded the ballots onto trucks, which hauled the ballots the 2½ miles back to county property.
For now, all of the ballot boxes will stay in a secure room at the Elections Department that only a few officials from the treasurer’s office have access to.
