“Arizona precincts with voting problems were not overwhelmingly Republican; Data analysis by The Washington Post undercuts claims pushed by gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake and former president Donald Trump, among others”


 The voting locations that experienced problems on Election Day in Maricopa County, home to more than half of Arizona’s voters, do not skew overwhelmingly Republican, according to ananalysis by The Washington Post.

The finding undercuts claims by someRepublicans — most notably Kari Lake, the GOP nominee for governor, and former president Donald Trump — that GOP areas in the county were disproportionately affected by the problems, which involved a mishap with printers.Republicans nonetheless argue that their voters were more likely to be affected, given their tendency to vote on Election Day rather than mail in their ballots.

The claims come as Lake continues to narrowly trail her rival, Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, and as the number of ballots remaining to be counted dwindles.
