Beginning April 21, trucks will deliver tabulation equipment to Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Phoenix as part of the state Senate’s audit of November’s election. The delivery of ballots will begin April 22.

This is the latest step in what has been a controversial process — one that almost led to members of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors being placed under arrest — and has continued to make headlines as the head of the firm leading the audit has been tied to the Stop the Steal movement.

So what will this audit actually accomplish? Would any kind of additional audit make sense?

To learn about that, The Show spoke with Charles Stewart, MIT political science professor and a member of the Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project.
