Arizona County Board Says Delays Certifying Election Results Is a 'Political Statement'

The Board of Supervisors in Mohave County, Arizona, has delayed the certification of the midterm election results in protest of voting issues in Maricopa County.

The board members made the decision to wait until the November 28 deadline to certify the election results as a “political statement” in “solidarity” with those angry with the voting machine issues in Maricopa County.

The news comes as Assistant Attorney General Jennifer Wright sent a letter to the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office demanding answers regarding the issues with ballot-on-demand printers.

Democratic Secretary of State Katie Hobbs was elected governor, and Sen. Mark Kelly, D-Ariz., was re-elected to a full six-year term when almost 2.6 million Arizonans voted.

However, Kari Lake has refused to concede the race, claiming the Election Day issues have disenfranchised her supporters.

On November 8, multiple problems at about 30% of its vote centers in Maricopa County were reported after tabulators failed to read some ballots.

As Fox News reported:

Election officials have said all the ballots were counted and that no one lost their ability to vote. Voters who experienced issues with the tabulators were told to place their ballots in a secure box, which were transported to the county elections headquarters and tabulated by machines in working order.

However, the state attorney general’s office demanded explanations in a November 19 letter, stating that “first-hand witness accounts” raised concerns over whether Maricopa County complied with state election law.

“Arizonans deserve a full report and accounting of the myriad problems that occurred in relation to Maricopa County’s administration of the 2022 General Election,” Wright wrote.

Around 17,000 Election Day ballots were affected by the problems, accordng to Maricopa County officials.

Just 16% of the 1.56 million votes cast in Maricopa County were made in person, the Associated Press reported.

Although Mohave County did not report issues with their ballots, board members voted to delay the certification of the results.

“It’s a political statement, I’m not going to lie,” board member Hildy Angius said.

“We did it in 2020, it doesn’t hinder us. It’s not going to hold us liable. It’s, again, a statement of solidarity with other counties who are doing this.”

Meanwhile, officials in southeastern Cochise County also voted to delay certification, requesting the secretary of state confirm that their vote-counting machines were legally certified.

Meanwhile, Kori Lorick, the state Elections Director, provided the county board with certifications for the vote-counting machines from the U.S. Election Assistance Commission.

Lorick warned the board that if the certification is not received by December 5, all Cochise County votes will go uncounted.

Democrats would benefit in the event of a failure to certify the results in Cochise County, as some Republicans won as much as 60% of the vote there.

Correction: 60% of the tabulation machines malfunctioned in Republican areas only and voters were told to go to other polling places after waiting 2 hours in line. Fox News reported inaccurately. Cheating on steroids with one of the gubinatorial candidates in charge of her own election.

There once was a girl from Nantucket, Who harvested votes in her bucket; At drop boxes she’d stand, With those ballots in hand, And stuff them like a Democrat puppet!
