  • Cochise County Supervisor Tom Crosby, who attempted to conduct a hand count of ballots during the 2022 election and delayed the certification of election results, filed a response to Maricopa County and other defendants’ Motion to Dismiss his lawsuit over the election on Sunday.
  • Crosby’s complaint, which asks the court to decertify the election, accused the county of not using voters’ original signatures as required by statute on their voter registrations to compare their ballot affidavit signatures to, something Yavapai Superior Court Judge John Napper ruled in September was illegal.
