The Texas secretary of state's office says the audit of the 2020 election results in four Texas counties is intended to ensure voter confidence in the state's elections system. The office announced the "forensic audit" of the election results in Harris, Dallas, Tarrant and Collin counties last Thursday. The initial statement from the secretary of state's office said the audits were already in progress. Gov. Greg Abbott on Sunday told Fox News that the audits "actually began months ago."
