The Chairman of Maricopa County’s Board of Supervisors has told CNN that there are around 400,000 ballots left to be counted in Arizona and that they won’t be done until “early next week.” The vote count has been stalled at about 70% counted for the past two days and Republicans are rightly outraged. Here are the comments from the chairman:

 

Voters also faced problems with ballot scanners when they voted in person on Tuesday in Maricopa County. Both Kari Lake and Blake Masters trail slightly to Democrats in their races and many are questioning why the votes are not being counted. Maricopa County tweeted an apology for the scanner issue which they say affected 7% of voters on election day.

States that are much larger in population than Arizona, like Texas and Florida, are able to count all of their votes on election day partly because they  count mail-in ballots before election day. Many are now demanding that Arizona implement this tactic to curb the insanity of week long vote counts.
