    Judge Issues Ruling on Republicans’ Emergency Request to Keep Polls Open Amid Voting Machine Chaos

    Published on

    Well before ballots were even counted on Tuesday, Arizona Republicans suffered one defeat, and the entire nation was watching.

    According to KTAR-FM, a court turned down the Republican National Committee’s emergency plea to extend voting hours in Arizona’s most populated county after voting locations had technical difficulties.

    The lawsuit claimed that “By preventing voters from obtaining and casting a ballot within a reasonable period of time, these pervasive tabulator malfunctions have effectively truncated the 13 hour voting period secured by state law.”

    According to Fox News, the judge in the case wasn’t buying it.

    According to Fox, the judge stated, “The court does not have evidence there was a voter who was precluded the right to vote from what was presented.”

    Republican Kari Lake, who is running against Democrat Katie Hobbs for governorship, and Republican Blake Masters, who is vying to replace Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly, were also named plaintiffs in the complaint.

    The election blunder, according to a lawyer for Masters’ campaign, was crucial.

    According to Fox, the attorney asserted that “It’s entirely possible this issue” could determine “our governor for the next four years, and the majority control of the United States Senate.”

    “If the margin of victory or loss is so close that it could determine the outcome, then we’ll come back to you, and we’ll argue about what to do about these ballots.”

    Tuesday’s elections in Arizona, which were already being keenly followed across the nation because the results might determine control of the U.S. Senate, were chaotic almost immediately after voting began due to the malfunction.

    County election authorities identified the issue’s root cause as erroneously adjusted printer settings in the tabulation devices at the polling places on Tuesday afternoon.

    The move was announced on Tuesday night by RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel.

    “The widespread issues — in an election administered by Democrat Secretary of State Katie Hobbs — are completely unacceptable, especially as Republicans flock to the polls to vote in-person on Election Day,” McDaniel wrote in a tweet.
