The race for the governor of Arizona isn’t over just yet.
The Arizona Attorney General’s office has announced that they will not certify the vote until Maricopa County responds to the list of complaints their election integrity unit has been getting.
“The Elections Integrity Unit of the Arizona Attorney General’s Office has received hundreds of complaints since Election Day pertaining to issues related to the administration of the 2022 General Election in Maricopa County,” Assistant Atty. Gen. Jennifer Wright wrote. “These complaints go beyond pure speculation, but include first-hand witness accounts that raise concerns regarding Maricopa’s lawful compliance with Arizona election law.”
“Arizonans deserve a full report and accounting of the myriad problems that occurred in relation to Maricopa County’s administration of the 2022 General Election,” she continued. “As the canvass is looming, and these issues relate to Maricopa County’s ability to lawfully certify election results – the Unit requests a response to the aforementioned issues on or before Maricopa County submits its official canvass to the Secretary of State, which must occur on or before November 28, 2022.”

“I saw a copy of the letter Saturday evening,” Thomas Liddy, the civil division chief at the Maricopa County’s Attorney’s Office said. “I will convene with my clients and begin the process of gathering the materials necessary to respond. As you are undoubtedly aware, Ms. Wright is still working on the AG’s Final Report of the 2020 election. I am looking forward to receiving that as well.”
“Rest assured I have assembled the best and brightest legal team, and we are exploring every avenue to correct the many wrongs that have been done this past week,” Kari Lake said in a video Thursday. “I’m doing everything in my power to right these wrongs.”
“What happened to Arizonans on Election Day is unforgivable,” she said.
