Kari Lake Maricopa County Lawsuit: Ariz.’s MARICOPA COUNTY Kari Lake, a Republican running for governor in Arizona, has filed a lawsuit against Maricopa County elections authorities, alleging that election laws were broken during the General Election earlier this month. The case was submitted to Maricopa County Superior Court on Wednesday.
Democrat Katie Hobbs defeated Republican Lake in the race with 50.3% of the vote to Lake’s 49.7%. The county is being compelled by the lawsuit to provide records pertaining to the handling of the General Election on November 8th. Due to the limited amount of time left to “determine whether the county has violated their (Lake’s) rights or the law and to seek remedies,” it is urgent to request prompt disclosure of the necessary information.

The Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer, the Maricopa County Directors of Elections for Election Day and Emergency Voting Scott Jarrett and Rey Valenzuela, as well as the members of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Bill Gates, Clint Hickman, Jack Sellers, Thomas Galvin, and Steve Gallardo, are named as defendants in the Lake’s lawsuit.
The lawsuit includes a number of complaints, including claims of incorrectly printed ballots that could not be read by voting machines, the mixing of counted and uncounted ballots, long queues at polling places that deterred voters from voting, as well as other circumstances.
Following the election in November, this is not the only complaint brought against Maricopa County election authorities. Abe Hamadeh, a Republican candidate for attorney general in Arizona, and the Republican National Committee also sued county officials earlier this week. In his lawsuit, Hamadeh claimed that there were “errors and inconsistencies” in the way that some polling sites were run and how the votes were tallied.
Additionally, Maricopa County is being asked to produce a thorough report on any problems with the ballot tabulators encountered on election day by the Election Integrity Unit of the Arizona Attorney General’s Office. The attorney general’s office demanded that the nation responds to the problems voters had on Election Day in a letter to the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office.
According to the letter, “These complaints go beyond speculative claims and include first-hand witness statements that raise doubts about Maricopa County’s legal observance of Arizona election law.”
On Election Day, the tabulators’ printer settings malfunctioned in 60 different voting places, according to Maricopa County election authorities. Vote counting in Arizona has come under great scrutiny, thus Maricopa County election officials fiercely fought off rumors and biased and false accusations in the days and weeks after the election.
