The State of Texas is auditing the 2020 election results of four counties following a request from former president Donald Trump. The secretary of state's office says it is starting a "full forensic audit" into the results from Harris, Dallas, Tarrant, and Collin counties. An office spokesperson said they were picked because they are the state's two largest Democratic and Republican counties. The audit comes months after former Secretary of State Ruth Hughs' office said the 2020 election was "smooth and secure." According to the Attorney General's office, 43 people in Texas have been charged in more than 500 instances of election fraud in the 2020 election with over 11 million ballots cast. That comes to .0004% of alleged cases of fraud in Texas among all votes cast. Trump won the state by 5.5%.
