Trump Campaign Files Suit in Arizona Claiming Election Day In-Person Ballots Were Rejected

 President Donald Trump’s campaign is alleging that some Arizona voters who voted in person on Election Day had their ballots rejected.

The campaign, the Republican National Committee and the Arizona Republican Party filed a lawsuit Saturday claiming misconduct on the part of Maricopa County and its election workers.

The lawsuit said that voters who had issues with their ballots when they submitted them would end up having their votes wiped out because elections workers gave them the wrong instructions.

This matters, the suit said, because “the adjudication and tabulation of these ballots will prove determinative of the outcome of the election for President of the United States in Arizona and/or other contested offices in Maricopa County.”

Arizona was among the states where the Trump campaign has been disputing the results of the presidential election.

On Saturday, multiple media organizations called Democratic candidate Joe Biden the winner of the content. However, Trump has not yet conceded and has multiple legal challenges pending in several states.

The lawsuit said some Arizona voters were effectively disenfranchised by their treatment at the polls, which took place after they put their ballots in machines for scanning.
