Executive Summary

Petersen, alongside numerous other state Republicans, signed on to a letter to Congress asking lawmakers to accept 11 “alternate” electoral votes for Trump or to have all of the state’s electoral votes “nullified completely until a full forensic audit can be conducted.”

Petersen is a driving force behind the Republican-backed push to audit the ballots from the 2020 election. He signed off on subpoenas ordering the ballots to be delivered for inspection. It’s still not clear who exactly will audit the results on behalf of the Senate and when it will occur.
