Former President Donald Trump issued a statement on Monday in which he referred to an election audit in the state of New Hamphire.

"New Hampshire's Election Audit has revealed that large-scale voting machines appear to count NON-EXISTING VOTES. State and local communities are seeking confirmation. It's probably true, but we’ll soon know. Why aren't Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Republicans doing anything about what went on in the 2020 Election? How can the Democrats be allowed to get away with this? It will go down as the Crime of the Century! Other States like Arizona, Georgia (where a Judge just granted a motion to unseal and inspect ballots from the 2020 Election), Michigan, Pennsylvania, and more to follow." Trump said in the statement.

While Trump did not specify exactly what he was referencing regarding New Hampshire, there is a Windham, New Hampshire audit that pertains to state representative seats. 

"Something we strongly suspect at this juncture, based on various evidence, is that in some cases, fold lines are being interpreted by the scanners as valid votes," independent auditor Mark Lindeman said, according to a WMUR article from earlier this month.
