Audit is a buzzword that has no specific legal meaning in the election context. It sounds nice, but to put content on it you have to look at the specific rules and regulations of a particular state.
In Michigan, the audit consists of two things. First, in each county, the county clerk does a hand recount of selected races in selected precincts to determine if the machines worked properly. Second, the Secretary of State takes a look at the documents from each county (poll books, test decks, etc.) to make sure that each county is following appropriate procedures. The audit is to make sure that things were working properly so that any problems may be fixed for future elections, it is not an investigation of the vote count which is final.
In Wisconsin, the audit is simply a hand recount of selected races in selected precincts. Under Wisconsin state law, the audit should have been completed by last Wednesday.
As far as investigations, there is no formal post-election investigation in either state. If there are complaints presented to law enforcement about potential election law violations, law enforcement will investigate them in due course along with all other crimes committed. My experience is don't expect anything out of them for several months at least and most will be quietly closed for lack of evidence.

Right wing sites keep reporting out of date information and claims which don't have any proof. Everything has been claims of irregularities of observers and nothing presented in affidavits or testimony says any votes were actually counted that were fraudulent. They discuss ballots mailed out that were never returned. Michigan and today, Wisconsin certified Biden. Milwaukee County added 132 net votes to Biden and Dane County added 25 votes net to Trump. Biden won Wisconsin by over 20,000 votes.
Trump needs at least 3 states overturned or invalidated, and if invalidated still has other procedures.
He's lost over 30 cases in courts for lack of evidence.
Sydney Powell, acting on behalf of other voters, as she was dropped by Trump as too wild in theories, first convinced a Federal judge to stop the machine resetting in Georgia. The machines need to be re-set to do a recount. Then the judge vacated (ended) his order, because the people being sued, Governor and Secretary of State etc, are not in charge of resetting the machines. Trump is requesting a recount in Georgia again, but they can't do it unless the machines are reset. The lawsuit in Georgia has a bunch of affidavits, but in reading them, one claims fraud in Venezuela, and a lot are stories of observers stopped from interfering with the counting. No evidence of any actual mis-voting in any state is presented in any court in the country.
This is all about getting people convinced that voting is untrustworthy. Trump claimed fraud in 2016 and his team found none after he had investigations in early 2017.
Judges are not interested in theories and in observers being told to stop interfering.
Voting groups are filing lawsuits against Trump now in State courts for trying to throw out valid votes.

YOU NEED TO BECOME UNGLUED FROM FOX FAKE NEWS because both Michigan and Wisconsin have been certified and Biden and Harris have won those states as well as Pennsylvania. This is why CHUMP and PENCE have been fired and President Biden and Harris have indeed been elected. THE ELECTION IS OVER. The given certification in December is just a formality because despite the fund raising plots by CHUMP and the GOP; there is NO legal revenue for given GOP clowns
that would allow them to change the given certification already done by the given Secretary Of State of each given U. S. state. And the Chief Justice Of The U. S. Supreme Court has already stated that they are not the forum to change the will of the people of our country. Nor are they the forum to change the certification of the given states noted by the given state Secretary Of State of each given state of our country. It's over folks.
WE have chosen our next president and vice president. President Biden and Vice President Harris.

it does not matter; As long as the judges keep reading the filings, determine the pleadings are groundless, and throw them out with prejudice ( all cases have at least been thrown out), it simply does not matter. Down with the dingbat, all the way down.

It could go tot he SCOTUS.
If you recount, like they did, but you are counting the SAME votes and many of them are ILLEGAL, then there is no point to it!
