Mohave County supervisors [are voting this week] to hand count all ballots cast in next year’s elections.
. . . Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes has long warned county officials across the state that they have no authority under state law to hand count ballots. Mayes, a Democrat, has pledged to restore trust in elections and prosecute individuals who threaten election officials.
She told Mohave County officials in a letter over the weekend that the “legal consequences would be serious” if they opted to hand count. She also expressed concern that supervisors had “received incorrect legal advice from bad-faith actors who are attempting to sow doubt in Arizona’s elections and ultimately undermine Arizona’s democratic process.”
Democratic Secretary of State Adrian Fontes told Mohave County supervisors in June that he also believes attempting a hand count would be illegal. . .
Two Cochise County supervisors are now being investigated by the Attorney General’s Office after attempting to hand count midterm results and delay certification last year.
