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

Arizona like many 3rd world countries must have outside observers (both US and foreign) to insure fair elections.

Every vote must be counted. No one should be declared a winner until the last vote is counted.

Both my husband and my mother were issued provisional ballots, even tho neither of them requested to be mailed an early ballot. They have a right to have their votes counted. I am disgusted with these shenanigans and want every vote counted. This is the United States of America!

I am sick and tired of the dirty tricks of the Republican party both nationally and locally which only serve to undermine the freedom and democracy they profess to value so highly.

To be legitimate, justice must be seen to be just. COUNT ALL THE VOTES!!
