Arizona GOP groups file lawsuit over mail-in ballot counting in tight Senate race

Four county Republican parties in Arizona have filed a lawsuit over the state’s mail-in ballot counting procedures.

The lawsuit, filed late Wednesday against all Arizona county recorders and the secretary of state, according to the Arizona Republic, comes after a too-close-to-call election in the state’s closely-watched Senate race.

There are currently 17,000 votes separating Democrat Kyrsten Sinema and Republican Martha McSally in the race to replace retiring GOP Sen. Jeff Flake. A Sinema win would mean a key Senate pickup for Democrats.

The GOP in Yuma, Navajo, Apache and Maricopa counties are challenging county processes for verifying signatures on mail-in ballots, according to the Republic.

Currently, some county recorders are calling voters whose mail-in ballot signatures do not match those on file, to have them verify that they signed the ballot.

The lawsuit claims that this practice violates state law and that calls to voters are only permitted before Election Day.
