The results of the audit of the 2020 presidential election results in Arizona's Maricopa County ​​are expected to be released Monday.

The audit was ordered by the Republican-led state Senate to look into potential voting irregularities in the state's largest county and was conducted by the Florida-based company Cyber Ninjas.

The draft report will be given to state GOP lawmakers, who plan to review the finding, a process that could take days or weeks, according to CNN

The audit will review roughly 2.1 million ballots.

Democratic President Joe Biden won the once-reliable red state over then-President Donald Trump by 10,000 votes, out of roughly 3.3 million ballots.  

The result of the audit will not change the outcome of the election but has served to draw attention to voting irregularities and potential voting fraud in 2020, with the expectation that voting officials across the country will take steps to further secure their state election systems. 

Republican lawmakers in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin are making efforts to have similar audits.
