Arizona has been in the news for a long time. The Raging Patriot has already reported that During the 2020 Presidential Election, Arizona was one of the states heavily contested. Claims of voter fraud occurred all over the state. Biden narrowly beat Trump by just 10,457 votes. The state took nearly four weeks to certify the November 3rd election after an official hand recount. The 2024 mid-term elections are less than three months away and Arizona is already experiencing controversy with mail-in ballots. 63,000 voters in Pinal County have received mail-in ballots with errors on the forms or have not received them. The errors include incorrect addresses, missing election races, missing candidates, and voters receiving ballots to vote in races they are not eligible for or not receiving ballots. One voter, Rhonda Barber, told ABC15 she “never received her ballot and her mother’s ballot was missing certain things.”

Now, it is being reported that a federal judge announced he will hear evidence against the use of electronic voting machines in Arizona’s upcoming midterm elections on Thursday, July 21.

Judge John J. Tuchi issued an order on Monday granting the hearing in response to a request for a preliminary injunction against the use of electronic voting machines and subsequent motions to dismiss filed by defendants Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs and the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors.

The original injunction was filed by plaintiffs Kari Lake, a candidate for Arizona’s gubernatorial race, and Arizona state Rep. Mark Finchem, who is running for secretary of state.

“As there is substantial overlap in the motions, the Court will entertain consolidated presentations from the parties,” the judge ordered. “Plaintiffs will have no more than two hours to present all argument and, as pertains to their application for injunctive relief, evidence. Defendants shall have no more than three hours collectively to present their argument and evidence.”

In the complaint, Lake and Finchem argued that they have “a constitutional and statutory right to have their ballots, and all ballots cast together with theirs, counted accurately and transparently so that only legal votes determine the winners of each office contested in the Midterm Election.”

“The use of untested and unverified electronic voting machines violates the rights of Plaintiffs and their fellow voters and office seekers, and it undermines public confidence in the validity of election results,” the complaint reads. “Just as the government cannot insist on ‘trust me,’ so too, private companies that perform governmental functions, such as vote counting, cannot be trusted without verification.”

With weeks before the crucial primaries in Arizona, election officials are admitting they made a “mistake” with ballots.

As noted by Yahoo News, over 60,000 Pinal County voters received early voting ballots with mistakes, and county officials told local news stations that they do not have a clear solution of when they will correct the issues.

County Attorney Kent Volkmer said they estimate 63,000 ballots have been impacted so far, revealing that the County Elections Office sent out “mistaken” ballots to at least seven cities or towns in Pinal County.
