PHOENIX – The Arizona Secretary of State’s Office will certify the results of the 2020 general election at the official canvass on Monday.

Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, Gov. Doug Ducey, Attorney General Mark Brnovich and Chief Justice of the Arizona Supreme Court Robert Brutinel will be in attendance at 11 a.m. to certify the results of local, state and the presidential election.

The certification will officially award Arizona’s 11 electoral votes to Democratic President-elect Joe Biden. According to the final numbers, Biden defeated Republican President Donald Trump by 10,457 votes.

A live stream of the event will be available on Facebook.

Biden will be inaugurated Jan. 20 after winning 306 electoral votes; Trump, who garnered 232 electoral votes, still hasn’t made a concession, even though lawsuits in battleground states he lost have been repeatedly dismissed.

The official canvass comes after the state has witnessed numerous attempts by the state’s Republican Party to delay counting in Maricopa County, citing concerns over how ballots were counted, arguing that voting machine were hacked and other issues.

Maricopa County officials certified its results on Nov. 20.

No evidence of fraud or hacking of voting machines has emerged during this election in Arizona.

Hobbs has battled misinformation leading up to and following the election. Hobbs, a Democrat, called the state’s election “a rousing success” and blasted voter fraud implications in the weeks following the election.

Ducey, a Republican, had evaded putting voter fraud conspiracies to rest. He said he would honor the results of the election after all legal challenges played out.

Ducey acknowledged on KTAR News 92.3 FM for the first time last week that voters had indeed made Biden the first Democratic presidential candidate to win Arizona since Bill Clinton 1996.
