PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona Senate Republicans have signed a lease to continue their slow-moving audit of the 2020 election results in Maricopa County.

The Senate and its contractors had rented the Veterans Memorial Coliseum through Friday but only got through a fraction of the 2.1 million ballots they're recounting. The Coliseum is booked for high school graduations next week. The ballots, computers, tables and other equipment will be stored elsewhere at the state fairgrounds. The Senate will regain access to the Coliseum May 23 through the end of June.

Republicans are recounting ballots in Arizona's largest county and looking into baseless conspiracy theories suggesting there were problems with the 2020 election.
