PHOENIX — Lisa Shacket said she needed to do it.
Despite the Arizona Democratic Party urging members not to participate in state Senate Republicans' audit of the 2020 presidential vote, Shacket went ahead and volunteered to find out what would happen to her ballot.
She did a two-day stint -- Monday and Tuesday -- as an audit observer at Veterans Memorial Coliseum.
"Both days I was there, I left horrified," Shacket, a Phoenix resident, said in an interview Wednesday.
Shacket is an active registered Democrat with a background in community and legislative work.
She signed up as an Arizona audit observer after providing three reference letters.
Her takeaways as a volunteer reflect the larger issues raised in an ongoing lawsuit: The audit has not publicly disclosed its policies and procedures, and might be doing some corner cutting.
"When I got there the first day, I was literally told, 'Talk to the observers and they'll answer your questions,'" she said.
Shacket said she and her fellow observers - they're the ones in the orange T-shirts - received no training in how the audit process was supposed to work.
Observers aren't allowed to talk to the green-clad ballot-counters, so Shacket listened.
"What I heard those table monitors say several times was, 'Speed is more important than accuracy,'" she said.

"#1 Exactly opposite - I have personally heard the CEO of Wake TSI (doing the counting) tell counters that accuracy is more important than speed. (if they don't match accurately, they have to re-do).
"#2- Yes, procedures can (and should) change every day as improvements are identified. Again, I have personally been in team leader meetings late in the evening when team leaders share ideas to make improvements. Most are small incremental changes but some are significant (like removing the video monitors and just looking at the ballots).
"#3 - There is a 5-10 minute briefing for observers. I've conducted several myself. It's mostly common sense things - observe, don't distract or talk with workers, who to bring concerns to, be quiet, remain outside the marked working boxes, don't congregate, etc."
Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt
Deep State seeks and finds someone on the inside to read their script
The disinformation program commences.
More to come. Deep state needs “confirmation” testimonials.
Deep state using delay in methods release to inject their venom.
For those paying close attention, we now know what two of the colors mean. Orange for observers, Green for counters. It as nothing to do with Power Rangers, Teletubbies or the color of spring flowers as previous suggested in FR.
IF they can’t legally shut it down, they send in some RAT plant to bad-mouth and discredit the effort to the public. They ain’t foolin’ anybody.
sounds like a DNC plant.
It is not surprising to read a story like this as INGSOC media wants to create this kind of narrative when they were not able to stop the audit itself from going ahead.
I’m watching the Live Stream and they’re not moving very fast
Why would they want speed if they are doing an audit?
She’s taking advantage of CyberNinja’s decision to shroud the process in secrecy as a trade secret.
If the Democrats ran the elections in secrecy as a trade secret I wouldn’t trust them, and it’s no surprise that if the Republicans run the audit in secrecy as a trade secret then they won’t trust us.
You are exactly correct. I have observed the same. You will also note that there are three counters at each table. That is where you get accuracy.
No wonder. Demonicrat treason is an ugly thing.
How dare you! Rat party activists are known to be paragons of honesty. Your assertion to the contrary constitutes insurrection. You’ll need to be canceled
This is probably about undermining the process before a court at some point.
Wait, the Democrat observers were not keep 20 feet way and then sent home in the middle of the count? That was considered acceptable for the election.
While the process itself is technically a trade secret, the execution of the process is most decidedly NOT secret. It is being played right before your eyes on full 1080 resolution on nine different cameras.
The reason that the process is a trade secret is not so much competitors don’t have a blueprint in which they can compete; it is done so that the Deep State instigators have very little chance on anticipating a potential point in which to pounce and significantly muddy up the waters. But everything they are doing is out in the open. (It’s like driving a car: You can steer the car, press the gas and brakes, and move at different speeds, but you may not know exactly what’s under the hood to power the car: combustion, electric, or hamster wheel.)
This is pure bs and apparently she was a Democrat (liar) observer, not doing the counting.
Just so rich. Republican observers were not horrified at all when the original count was occurring. Why? Because during the election Republican observers were shut out completely. When lawsuits were raised doubt the irregularities, with affidavits in support, they sounded EXACTLY like this woman now. YET, those were discounted and this person’s opinions about the audit will be treated as sacrosanct.
