Republicans File Suit Over Ballot Count In McSally/Sinema Race

Barack Obama Stacey abrams

The suit said doing so is illegal and creates an uneven playing field because other counties stop verifying such ballots after Election Day.

Meanwhile another Republican leads, though the gap is tightening, as votes are being counted in Florida's Senate race.

More than 600,000 votes were uncounted in a race where more than 2 million people cast ballots. That's a shift from a race that drew national attention for its tense battle between two candidates vying to be Arizona's first female senator.

The Latest on a lawsuit filed by Arizona Republicans seeking to block some ballots from being counted. Sinema has gained votes recently from Maricopa, and Pima is a Democratic bastion.

The suit filed by four county Republican parties - Maricopa, Apache, Navajo and Yuma counties - alleges that the state's 15 county recorders don't follow a uniform standard for allowing voters to adjust problems with their mail-in ballots, and that two counties improperly allow those fixes after Election Day. McSally met with supporters at a diner in the Phoenix suburb of Chandler, urging them to "carbo-load" and get back to knocking on doors to get out the vote.

"Arizonans must have faith that their votes are counted, and we are working diligently to ensure that count proceeds in a fair, transparent, and timely manner that voters can trust", Sinema for Arizona campaign manager Andrew Piatt said in a statement.

"I know the Democrats think all 3rd party voters would've chosen them, but I'm sorry to say that's just not the case".

All mailed ballots and the ballots that could have been mailed but were dropped off by the voters require a series of labor-intensive verifications. Voters are called to verify they signed the green envelope of the ballot, which is required by law.

"The county elections departments are all hands on deck right now with all of their staff resources, so any sort of lawsuit, or anything that might change where resources are allocated, is unfortunately, going slow down the process", Garrett Archer, senior analyst with the Arizona Secretary of State's office, told KTAR News 92.3 FM's Arizona's Morning News on Thursday. Colleen Connor, deputy Maricopa County attorney, said there were only 5,600 votes in Maricopa that would fall under the lawsuit and that the rates elsewhere also appeared low.

He said the system only allows his office to tally about 75,000 votes a day.

Arizona's knock-down, all-out Senate race is heading into overtime, as a neck-and-neck contest between two congresswomen collides with Arizona's sometimes glacial vote-counting procedures. McSally is no stranger to the issue.

The race was too close to call on Tuesday night, so McSally and Sinema were absent from the watch parties where other candidates declared victory or conceded. "I've been here before, and now, here I am again.the dentist's chair".
