The voting machines in Arizona are meant to be top-tier, cutting-edge technological marvels that contribute to one of America’s greatest and most illustrious achievements: the right to vote for our own representatives. On Tuesday night, though, elections devolved into a disorganized shambles due to faulty voting machines.
According to the website of the secretary of state for Arizona, the certification of voting equipment must be looked into, reviewed, and updated before every election.
“All components of a voting system are certified according to state and federal law prior to use in any election for a federal, state, or county office. A.R.S. § 16-422(B),”
“State certification includes a review of system documentation and/or conducting a demonstration and functionality test. Upgrades or modifications to an existing voting system require recertification, but if the upgrade or modification is de minimis, a demonstration and functionality test is optional and not always required. A request for emergency conditional certification is subject to different standards,”
“Prior to every statewide election, each county provides the list of equipment in use for that election. The equipment certification committee reviews applications according to state statute.”
What should voters do now that the voting machines are broken and how did things get so bad in that state? Independent media is now discussing this.
“The fake news, tech giants, Democrats and our elites want us to believe that a solid red state switched to the Democrat Party in 2020 and then after 2 years of complete disaster and a wide open border, Democrats came back to sweep the state for the first time ever?” In his article for Gateway Pundit, Jim Hoft added:
“Because Arizonans LOVE open borders and fentanyl! God save us from this wickedness. Kari Lake delivered another amazing speech on Tuesday night.”
“We will take the victory when it comes. And we will turn this state around!”

Hoft wrote, referencing a poll, “It’s not over yet.”
Voter mistrust of Maricopa County Arizona election officials and their Box 3 alternative is demonstrated at the video below here. 2 hours to scan a voter ballot. A total joke.

More on this story via The Republic Brief:
NBC reported that Maricopa County emerged as a flashpoint in the midterm elections after a state judge declined a last-minute effort to extend voting hours following widespread issues that led officials to use secure ballot boxes.
“Technicians were dispatched to polling sites across Arizona’s largest county on Election Day to fix dozens of malfunctioning vote tabulation machines, a widespread issue that frustrated voters and led some GOP politicians and pundits to spread misleading or false information.
Election officials stressed that the machines were not inaccurately reading ballots, but rather, not accepting them at all.” CONTINUE READING…
