In Arizona, Secretary of State Katie Hobbs oversaw an election where mass incompetency ran rampant, and voters across the state complained of problems at countless polling places on Election Day.
Since Nov. 8, reports of vote tabulator problems and voter disenfranchisement have flooded out of the Grand Canyon State, shocking the nation and proving Kari Lake right when she said, “For two years, I’ve been sounding the alarm about our broken election system here in Arizona, and this past week has confirmed everything I’ve been saying.”
On Thursday, Kari Lake and her official campaign Twitter account began sharing videos of heavily disenfranchised voters in Arizona, sharing their stories on how they were turned away from polling centers or denied an opportunity to vote.
One story on Lake’s account was truly shocking: “Jalen registered to vote at his community college campus. When he showed up to vote they refused to give him a full ballot, & asked if it was an illegal immigrant. After providing them proof that he was born & raised in Arizona, Jalen was STILL denied his right to vote.”
Another video came from an Arizona citizen named Dan. “Dan has been voting for as long as he can remember,” the Kari Lake War Room tweeted. “When Dan showed up to vote on Election Day, they told him he was no longer on the voting rolls & gave him a provisional ballot. Dan’s vote has still not been counted. He’s not confident it will be.”
In a video posted Thursday morning, Lake said that “nearly HALF of all polling locations [in Arizona] had problems with tabulating machines and printers.”
Between long lines, machine malfunctions, printer problems, and bungled paperwork, Arizona citizens appear to have been entirely stiffed on the sanctity of their election process. Ironically, the Arizona midterms disaster was overseen by Hobbs, who now claims to be the “governor-elect” of the state, despite thousands of voters who were potentially turned away at the polls.
Hobbs refused to recuse herself from overseeing her election.
