Bill Gates, a member of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, stands at the podium with board chairman Jack Sellers in the background after the board approved a settlement agreement with the Arizona Senate related to the county’s routers on Friday, Sept. 17, 2021.

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors and Arizona Senate leaders have reached a settlement related to the review of the 2020 general election.

The county will answer the Senate’s questions about its routers and will no longer seek Senate repayment for potentially compromised voting machines. 

The agreement, approved in a 4-1 vote by the county’s board of supervisors on Friday ends weeks of debate over the county potentially losing a large chunk of money from the state.

 The county will answer the Senate’s questions about its routers through a special master — former U.S. Rep. John Shadegg — who will have access to the routers and Splunk logs, which are logs showing internet activity. 

The agreement marks an end to months of quarreling between county and Senate leaders about the Senate’s review of the county’s 2020 election. The audit wrapped up in July, and results are expected Sept. 24.
