Arizona certifies election results despite litigation in US

The confirmations came after the state’s 15 counties made the official announcement, but specialized media characterized the process as a fierce battle between election officials, conservative candidates, and some county boards.

According to The Hill newspaper, the Republican Party (also known as the GOP) took advantage of a printer malfunction during last month’s midterm elections to launch allegations of voter fraud and tried to challenge the decision in the election. Of.

On election day, in Maricopa County, the printing equipment in 70 of the 223 polling places used too light ink, making it difficult for the tabulating machines to work.

However, officials stressed that those affected had several options for casting their ballots, such as waiting until the issue was resolved, casting the ballot at another facility, or depositing it in a separate ballot box, for which they remarked that no voter was deprived of his rights.

However, some GOP figures and their supporters said the officials lied and unsuccessfully asked county boards not to certify their campaigns in recent days.

Former US President Donald Trump (2017–2021), who fed theories of fraud in the 2020 vote that was later debunked by all evidence, remarked, without evidence, that Lake deliberately “fleeted away from the election”. were taken”.

Also a few days ago conservative candidate for attorney general Abe Hamadeh filed a lawsuit challenging his race decision, with party rival Chris Mayes in blue ahead by a small margin.

As the newspaper indicates, Monday’s meeting is likely to trigger a number of lawsuits being driven by the Republican Party, and state law gives five days to formally challenge the results in court.

The Lake and Hamadeh campaigns, as well as others in the Red Ranks, criticized the role of Hobbs (who is currently Arizona’s secretary of state) in signing the certification documents on this day, arguing that he had a conflict of interest because he was the elected governor. .

Litigation in Arizona also involved two conservative-run counties voting to delay certification of election results after November 8.
