💥URGENT CALL TO ACTION💥
Maricopa County just published a letter to the Attorney General's Office that the advice Supervisor Chairman Bill Gates gave to voters in a video with Recorder Stephen Richer on Election Day telling them they could leave the vote center after having checked in and go somewhere else would result in them only being able to vote a provisional ballot which the County would later reject.
If you weren't able to vote from the chaos on election day in Maricopa County or your vote didn't count, please follow the steps below to file a complaint with the Attorney General's Office.
STEP 1. Check to see if your ballot has been counted.
If you voted in the 2022 Arizona General Election, you need to see if your ballot was counted. Check to see if your ballot has been accepted and counted on Maricopa County's website. If you live in a different county, click the "Other Counties" button.
If the County shows your vote was counted, you don't need to file a report with the Attorney General unless you witnessed or experienced bad things happening.
If your vote wasn't counted or you couldn't vote because of the problems on Election Day or something else, proceed to Step 2.
Step 2. File a Report with the Arizona Attorney General's Office
Consider filing a report with the Attorney General's Election Integrity Unit for the following reasons:
If you voted in person and your ballot has not been counted
You witnessed bad things happening on election day
Decided not to vote because of the chaos or because of bad instructions you received from election officials
Were forced to vote on a provisional ballot because you previously checked into a vote center but couldn't cast your ballot
Worked the election and saw things that were not normal
Other issues that are concerning to you that you witnessed or experienced
Even if you filled out another form for another site, it will not help secure our elections unless your complaint is sent to the AZ Attorney General's Office. Please make sure to submit all the things to the Arizona Attorney General's Election Integrity Unit.
This needs to be completed as soon as possible.
Kari Lake describes the chaos on Election Day and praises the work of the Attorney General's office to rectify what happened. It's because of voters like you submitting your cases to the AG's Election Integrity Unit that an investigation is finally able to happen!
Thank you for your due diligence in participating in the process!
Step 2b. File an HAVA complaint.
It is federal law that every legal voter is able to vote if one wishes. If you were not able to cast a vote due to the chaos on Election Day, were forced to vote provisionally, or Maricopa's website shows your vote was not counted, please consider filing an HAVA complaint by following the HAVA Tool Kit. This will require notarization:
Step 3. Take the Election Survey
EZAZ.org is dedicated to educating and empowering the voters of Arizona. Before the county certifies the election on November 28th, please take a moment to share your election experience. Your anonymized feedback will help inform lawmakers and election officials about the legislation needed to make it easier to vote but harder to cheat.
Action Already Taken to Hold Maricopa County Accountable
11/19 - The Arizona Attorney General's office said they received hundreds of cases from voters sent to their Election Integrity Unit with serious violations and voter disenfranchisement. The AG sent a demand letter to Maricopa County for records showing their activities before, during, and after the disenfranchisement that occurred on Election Day and stated statutes they violated.
11/21 - Maricopa County responded on twitter they would comply with the AG's letter with their presentation at the next Supervisor's meeting when they certify the election.
11/22 - Maricopa County GOP and AZ GOP also submitted a public records request to the County Attorney's office. They received a reply that the County will reply to the public records request after certification.
11/22 - AG candidate Abe Hamadeh filed a lawsuit against all of the counties which seems like it's an injunction against certification. AG candidate Kris Mayes files a motion to dismiss. Lawsuit dismissed but can be resubmitted in the 5 day elector period after certification.
11/23 - Kari Lake filed a lawsuit compelling Maricopa County to comply with public records requests.
11/23 - Senator Kelly Townsend served Maricopa County with a subpoena for the same records asked for by the AG in addition to several other items.
11/25 - All 15 County GOP Parties and the Arizona GOP sent a letter to Maricopa County stating the blunders and violations of their election management requesting they do not certify the election as it cancels out the votes of the other 14 counties who did operate elections according to law.
11/27 - Gail Golec, an elector, files a lawsuit against numerous parties calling for the election to be nullified and a revote to be ordered. Lawsuit dismissed.
11/27 - Maricopa County publishes a report from their Elections Department in preparation for certification.
11/27 - Maricopa County publishes a response to the AG. In the letter, they admit that voters that followed Chairman Supervisor Bill Gates' advice were required to cast a provisional ballot and likely their vote was rejected. They also admit to breaking the chain of custody. They justify both actions as being lawful.
To protect Arizona from the mistakes we've seen occur over the last two terms, Governor Ducey can call a special session to move the Election Procedures Manual to oversight by the Legislature so that future Secretary Fontes can't override the statutes and create chaos in the elections.
Gov. Ducey should also consider Sen. Warren Petersen's legislation to curb the emergency powers of the governor.
ADDITIONAL ELECTION-RELATED CALLS TO ACTION
Please be polite, kind, and respectful in your messages to the elected officials. Thank you!
