Two Arizona counties, Cochise and Mohave, are going to delay their ballot certification for the Arizona 2022 election results a while longer because of potential irregularities.
There have been irregularities in the governors’ race in Arizona in Maricopa County in 2022.. The county had ballots which took longer to be counted. Machines didn’t work for a period of time on election night 2022 for a variety of reasons.
Cochise County’s two GOP supervisors voted to delay certifying the results until Nov. 28 in a 2-1 vote, The Hill reported.
Mohave County’s Board of Supervisors also voted to delay the certification of the Arizona election results Monday.
Arizona’s assistant Attorney General Jennifer Wright submitted a letter Nov. 19 to Tom Liddy, head of civil litigation for the county, asking for the issues affecting Maricopa County to be investigated.
Wright noted in a letter that the office had “received hundreds of complaints since Election Day pertaining to the administration of the 2020 General Election in Maricopa County.”
“Following widespread reports of problems at voting locations on Election Day, Chairman Gates publicly stated that voters who had already checked in to e-Pollbook, but were having difficulties voting, could ‘check out’ of that voting location, and would be able to nonetheless vote in another voting location,” the letter read.
GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake has not yet conceded in the 2022 election despite her Democratic opponent Katie Hobbs, who declared victory.
The Arizona’s attorney general’s race remains too close to call. There is a 510 difference out of approximately 2.5 million cast in that race.
