Counting Of Arizona Votes Complete, Three Automatic Recounts Required


Maricopa County wrapped up its vote counting on Monday, leaving no more votes left to count in the state. Now counties have until Nov. 28 to canvas their elections and send the results to the Secretary of State’s Office.

There will be automatic recounts in the Attorney General’s race, Superintendent of Public Instruction race, and the Legislative District 13 (LD13) House race. Arizona law was recently changed, requiring automatic recounts if a candidate wins by a margin that is less than or equal to 0.5% of total votes cast.

Democrat Kris Mayes leads Republican Abe Hamadeh in the Attorney General’s race by 510 votes.

The Superintendent of Public Instruction race between incumbent Kathy Hoffman and victor Tom Horne is also subject to an automatic recount, with only a 0.36% vote margin between the two candidates.

Currently, Democrat incumbent Jennifer Pawlik leads in the LD13 race, however, the race between the second and third place candidates, Liz Harris and Julie Willoughby, is subject to an automatic recount due to the fact that they are separated by only 270 votes.

Although Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake failed to secure enough votes to force a recount, she vowed on Monday to keep up the fight, presumably referring to a legal challenge due to Maricopa County mismanagement.

  1. Audit the mail-in ballot envelope signatures. A recent audit of 104,820 Maricopa envelopes from 2020 found 20% invalid. There’s no reason to believe the 2022 election is different. That’s a lot of invalid ballots – enough to invalidate the election.

  2. This is complete BS. A re-do is critical – with paper ballots, one day voting, ID, etc.
    After the steal of ’20, if this steal is allowed to stand, AZ is lost.

    • The 2020 Arizona vote was overseen by Republicans and was recounted by Republicans and then was audited by a firm headed by a Pro-Trump election denier. They all came up numbers that would not have changed the outcome of the election. And yet, even though Republicans were overseeing the counting, you continue to believe disproved internet assertions. The only way you will believe the outcome is if your horse wins. That is the real danger to AZ. The Republicans have been scaring people about the integrity of elections ever since it was obvious they were a minority party. They have never been able to present evidence in a court of law (even courts with Trump appointed judges) to support their claims. And a court of law is the only place you are punished for lying. The only case that I know of where the court determined a significant enough problem too re-do the election was corruption of the election by someone working for a Republican candidate in a Southern state.

  3. What is going to happen next is they will do the canvas and then certify the election results and then do everything they can to block the legal challenges like destroy evidence, refuse to comply with subpoena’s, etc. It is the same thing all over again.

  4. Another article reported that tabulating problems occurred at 70 polling places. Poll workers reported that ballots that would not tabulate and ballots that tabulated properly were mixed up in the same boxes and duffel bags. How many people got out of line and didn’t come back?

    • I hate to say it but it’s on them if the voters left and didn’t come back and they have no right to complain

      • If you’re an hourly employee that can’t vote w/in a 6 hour window & need the income from your job & every hour counts to make ends meet, this becomes a pretty important issue. You’re thinking too narrow my friend. Voting isn’t reimbursed for time off in most cases. It should be a holiday, but it is not. I’d bot on Christmas if that’s what it took. I think you missed the mark here.

  5. With the issues that Maricopa County had with voting on election day. We need to do what Berlin; Germany has to do and that is a complete redo of the election, at least for Maricopa County. All votes in person and mail ins need to be scrapped then a new election held even if it takes us past November 28th. Anything less is a blatant attack on our rights as citizens.
