    ‘Entire Election Should Be Nullified’ – Ariz. GOP Candidate Says 1 Thing Is Enough to Upend It All

    Published on

    There are increasing demands for the Arizona general election results to be thrown out as we enter Week 2 following the ill-fated midterm elections amid fresh charges that the broken voting equipment used on Election Day was never authorized for use in the first place.

    “The machines were NEVER approved for use. They weren’t certified according to state law! The entire election should be nullified just based off of this!” Republican Josh Barnett tweeted on Saturday.

    Republican incumbent Rep. David Schweikert defeated Barnett in the Republican primary for Arizona’s 1st Congressional District. Schweikert won the general election by just 3,102 votes over Democrat Jevin Hodge.

    The former Republican candidate cited a letter from the Arizona Attorney General’s Office’s elections integrity section requesting a response from the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office “pertaining to issues related to the administration of the 2022 General Election in Maricopa County.”

    The letter included a list of complaints from voters regarding extensive voting machine issues, strange printing mistakes, and rejected ballots on November 8.

    The Republican cited ARS 16-442(b), which states that “Machines or devices used at any election for federal, state or county offices may only be certified for use in this state and may only be used in this state if they comply with the help America vote act of 2002 and if those machines or devices have been tested and approved by a laboratory that is accredited pursuant to the help America vote act of 2002.”

    Barnett reiterated his position on Sunday, asserting that the election was tainted.

    “The machines were never properly certified by the appropriate accredited company according to state law ARS 26–442(b),” he claimed.

    Stephen Richer, the Maricopa County Recorder, was accused of “lying” by Barnett because “He said they were certified, but he failed to mention it was by a nonaccredited company.”

    According to the letter sent by the elections integrity unit of the Arizona Attorney General’s Office, the voting machines had been tested the night before the Nov. 8 election but then suspiciously started malfunctioning on Election Day.

    “Based on sworn complaints submitted by election workers employed by Maricopa County, the BOD printers were tested on Monday, November 7 without any apparent problems,” Assistant Attorney General Jennifer Wright wrote in the letter, dated Saturday.

    “Many of those election workers report that despite the successful testing the night before, the tabulators began experiencing problems reading ballots printed by the BOD printers within the first thirty minutes of voting on Tuesday, November 8, 2022,” she wrote. CONTINUE READING…
