Tell AZ’s Maricopa County Recorder: We want a fair election system!

Over 400,000 Maricopa County voters, who total over 60% of the entire state electorate, have not had their votes counted.   This, along with hundreds of accounts of irregularities and problems at the polls, from long lines to voters being turned away, is outrageous.  This cannot be tolerated. 

According to various sources, there are anywhere from 75,000 to 480,000 early ballots and provisional ballots that have not been counted. 

With the vote difference between candidates in both the U.S. Senate race and the Maricopa County Sheriff’s race under 90,000, these votes could make a difference in the election.  If only they were counted.

Dear County Recorder Helen Purcell,

As Americans, we believe in a fair election system we can trust.

Throughout Election Day on November 6th, at polling locations across Maricopa County, voters were denied their legitimate access to vote and were forced to vote with provisional ballots.

We request a full accounting of all uncounted ballots by next Tuesday, November 13, including the precinct location and Party affiliation of the ballots.

We request that there be a through investigation of the problems encountered by voters on Election Day, in full cooperation with the Department of Justice

I was forced to do a provisional ballot and my vote did not count…and I was even on their stupid voter list. They in effect have a prejudiced voting system and make it confusing to vote. That does not even count atempts by REPUBLICANS to lead democrats to the wrong polling stations and misprints on spanish mail-in ballots. How is all of that not a crime and how do they not expect people to completely loose faith in a system as described above. The Arizona voting system is plain and simply crooked. FIX-IT and try and make it legal and unprejudiced while you are at it! I’m sure out of the 600,000 votes that were counted late, only very few were aloud to count, due to crooked Arizona voting rules.

Request for mobile phone is illegitimate, and hence the phone above is wrong.

Sham elections, such as those held in countries ruled by malevolent dictators, are a shameful thing, and when this happens in America, it is a HIDEOUSLY SHAMEFUL thing! I learned of 3 Hispanic siblings whose names mysteriously disappeared off voter lists. They had to use provisional ballots. I heard from people whose ballots never showed up in the mail, when they were clearly signed up for those ballots, and had received ballots in the mail previously. Thank heavens the US Dept. of Justice is looking into this, and if there was some subterfuge, then those who committed same, should serve a very long time in prison for attempting to destroy the very nature of our democracy.

I do believe what can observed is systemic forced provisional voting which looks very racist. And I do believe all this should be looked into along with bringing up the Voting Rights Act of 1965. I believe there is clear evidence of directed sabotage in election offices in certain areas across the united states. There are people who didn’t get the correct polling info sent to them others have registered for absentee ballots never sent but show up and told they already voted absentee. This happened in several places across the united states where a republican was in an election office position. Sending false info to voters on places to vote as well as closing polls and moving polls with very little info. These issues will come up with more investigation i would check the reasons for provisional ballots as it could give a good understanding of why so many ended up being forced to vote provisionally.
