Poll worker testifies on AZ voting problems: ‘Every single time it happened — it was a Democratic voter’

Published

An Arizona poll worker testified Monday that dozens of voters — all of them Democrats — were affected by a computer glitch during last month’s primary election.

Dianne Post, an attorney and Maricopa County poll worker, testified that the computer system checking in voters would not allow her to give the correct ballots to 36 voters, and she said 22 other voters were listed in the wrong party, reported the Arizona Republic.

“Every single time it happened to me it was a Democratic voter who wasn’t able to access a Democratic ballot,” Post said.

Alisa Wolfe, of Pima County, testified that her voter registration had been improperly switched from Democratic to independent.

Maricopa County Superior Court Judge David Gass rejected requests to dismiss a lawsuit filed over the problematic March 22 primary election, which was won by Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump.

The Democratic Party, Clinton and her primary challenger, Bernie Sanders, filed lawsuits over problems caused when election officials shut down numerous polling stations to save money.

A Tucson resident, John Brakey, filed a separate lawsuit against Arizona Secretary of State Michele Reagan and all 15 counties after the election, asking for results to be decertified.

The state attorney general has said primary results can’t be challenged because Brakey can’t demonstrate the results would have changed.

The U.S. Department of Justice is investigating whether Maricopa County violated voting-rights laws.
