Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake (R) excoriated Maricopa County leadership over reports of vote tabulation machines breaking down.
“I don’t like the embarrassment of every election having problems. I hope you don’t either,” she told reporters at a press conference Tuesday afternoon.
“Within minutes of the polls opening up, I started getting people calling, voters in tears, calling my personal number, saying ‘What’s going on? The tabulators aren’t working. They told me to put my ballot into a box and they would drive it downtown to county,’” Lake said. “This is not normal stuff. We don’t have to have elections run this way.”
Maricopa County has identified the solution for the tabulation issues at about 60 Vote Centers. This solution has worked at 17 locations, and technicians deployed throughout the county are working to resolve this issue at the remaining locations. pic.twitter.com/Og7bXf0CsV— Maricopa County Elections Department (@MaricopaVote) November 8, 2022

Former President Trump delivered a message to Arizonans not to leave the voting lines due the delays.
“I know you don’t want to be there as long as they’re going to try and force you,” Trump said. “They want to delay you out of voting and you cannot let them delay you out of voting.”
“So, to the people of Arizona in particular because that’s the one that’s come up right now, stay online don’t leave. Already, a lot of people have left and it’s very, very unfair what’s going on. Maricopa County, don’t leave. Stay there.”
This comes amid reports that voting machines were also experiencing problems in New Jersey on Tuesday.
A Pennsylvania county also reportedly ran out of paper, extending the polling deadline to 10 PM EST.
