The Arizona Senate will conduct its own recount of the total number of Maricopa County ballots cast in last fall’s election, Senate President Karen Fann said Thursday.

The Senate has purchased two paper-counting machines to serve as a check on the work done by its contractor, Cyber Ninjas, as well as the count done by county elections officials.

Fann called it a “triple-check” on the number of ballots cast as the audit is winding down toward a possible end late next week.

”We’re going to run all the ballots through to see how they match up,” she said in an interview an hour after stopping by the audit’s new location in a muggy, swamp-cooled building at the state fairgrounds.

“If there ends up being a difference, we’d have another count,” Fann said.
