- Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, a Democrat now running for governor, is acknowledging that as many as 6,000 voters got a mail ballot with only federal races.
- Hobbs, whose campaign is staked largely on defending the integrity of the 2020 elections, said Tuesday the mistake was the result of a database glitch.
She also said affected voters will receive the correct ballot shortly.
Kari Lake, the Arizona GOP gubernatorial nominee, who has made concerns about voting irregularities and fraud a centerpiece of her campaign, has called on Hobbs to step aside from overseeing the midterms while she’s on the ballot.
The Hobbs-Lake race is essentially deadlock, according to the most recent RealClearPolitics.com polls average.
