Judge Rejects GOP Request to Keep Polls Open After Technical Difficulties

Objectivity 4.5 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.6

An Arizona court rejected a Republican-backed lawsuit requesting to keep polls open for provisional ballots in Maricopa County after “hiccups” with some vote tabulators earlier in the day caused confusion at polling places.  “The court does not have evidence there was a voter who was precluded the right to vote from what was presented,” the judge said minutes before polls closed Tuesday. The lawyer for Maricopa County also said leaving polling places open after 7 p.m. MT would be giving the county a special treatment.
