The final tally in the 2022 Arizona Attorney General’s race showed a margin of 280 votes out of more than 2.5 million cast — and any race that close is going to get an awful lot of scrutiny.  That’s a closer margin than in the original count: a statewide recount turned up a discrepancy of about 500 votes in Pinal County, attributed to human error.

Now Votebeat Arizona has an in-depth, long-form piece on that error – including counting problems caught the second time around that really should have been caught and reconciled the first time.
