Workers fill the floor of the Veterans Memorial Coliseum, the site of the Maricopa County ballot audit, on April 27, 2021.

The Show regularly checks in with the Editorial Board of the Arizona Republic to talk about current issues facing the state and the region — featured in columns on the newspaper’s op-ed pages.

Lawmakers from other states are now visiting the site of the audit happening at the Coliseum, possibly to encourage their own leaders to conduct similar audits in their states in the future — 2022 or beyond.

In a column over the weekend in the Republic, author and Brookings Institution Senior Fellow Jonathan Rauch wrote that the current process is part of creating public doubt about broader U.S. norms — not just our elections.

The Show spoke with Phil Boas of the Republic about Rauch’s column.
