Texas SOS Releases
Final Phase of the Agency's Full Forensic Audit of the 2020 General Election


In case you missed it when it was posted on Monday in the News section of the DCRP website, the Texas SOS released the report on the audit of the 2020 election in Texas. Both the full report (360 pages) and its Executive Summary have been posted to the DCRP website for download.


Texas Secretary of State John Scott today (12/19/2022) released a report on the second and final phase of the agency's full forensic audit of the 2020 General Election in four of Texas' largest counties: Collin, Dallas, Harris and Tarrant. Phase 2 of the audit, undertaken over the past year by the Texas Secretary of State's Forensic Audit Division, included a comprehensive examination of election records from the 2020 General Election in each of the four counties, resulting in more than 369 GB of data obtained. The Phase 2 final report, which spans 360 pages, includes key findings from the 2020 General Election on aspects of the election process, including: reconciliation of voters checked in versus ballots cast; physical security of election equipment; adequacy of counties' training materials; ballot-by-mail processes; provisional ballots; voter registration; and complaints received regarding alleged irregularities.


Chad Ennis, Director of the Texas Secretary of State's Forensic Audit Division, writes the following in the executive summary of the report: "When procedures are followed, results of the election are trustworthy. Indeed, in most cases, the audit found that the counties followed their procedures and clearly documented their activities. In some cases, however, they did not. As outlined in this Report, in cases where procedures were not followed, discrepancies and irregularities ranging from small to large ensued."
