Maricopa County authorities estimate that roughly 20% of their polling locations in the Valley are having problems with tabulation devices only hours before Election Day.
While the particular addresses and number of places affected have not been confirmed, the Maricopa County Recorder’s Officer has stated that technicians have been dispatched to repair the precinct tabulator machines that aren’t operating.
Officials indicate that not every equipment at the impacted voting places is faulty, so citizens may still be able to vote at their preferred locations.
It is yet unclear why so many of the devices are malfunctioning.
Voters have the option of depositing their ballot in a safe box to be counted later, voting elsewhere, or returning later in the day in the hopes that the situation will be resolved.
Maricopa County employs Dominion tabulators, which are available in a variety of brands. The machines are mostly new.
Officials stated the Arizona Senate’s election review irreversibly harmed those utilized in the 2020 election.
The county spent millions of dollars buying new devices and then destroying the old equipment that had been subpoenaed for the Cyber Ninjas-led audit.
