What exactly was Sheriff Mark Lamb’s post referring to in this instance?
Voting problems hampered Arizona’s Pinal County‘s primary election last week, providing Republicans and Democrats enough chance to advance their opposing narratives of election administration.
More than a dozen polling locations in Pinal, the third-largest county in the state, ran out of ballots on Tuesday. County authorities admitted that not enough ballots were printed to accommodate the demand for in-person voting on Election Day.
Republicans running for governor in Arizona, notably Kari Lake, who won the GOP nomination, seized on the blunder as proof of the fictitious widespread fraud that was a key talking point in many Republican campaigns, including her own.
“I think if you looked at how last night and yesterday went down, you can see there were some very serious problems,” Lake said Wednesday, the day after the election, during a speech in which she prematurely declared victory. “The fact [that in] Pinal County people showed up and one hour into the polls being open, they ran out of ballots — we’ve seen irregularities, we’re monitoring things.”
