The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday dismissed a challenge filed by an Arizona denizen who had sought to prove claims of Election fraud during the Nov. 3 Election in her state. The nine justices, without comment, dismissed (pdf) a request by Pinal County denizen Staci Burk to find evidence of Election fraud. Burk had sought access to ballots to prove that some were invalid or fraudulent.
Earlier this year, the Arizona Supreme Court issued a ruling that concurred with a tribulation court judge in Pinal County that Burk lacked the right to contest the election. The reason given was that she wasn’t a registered voter at the time she filed her lawsuit, as required in state Election contests. Both courts additionally acceded that she made her licit challenge too tardy, after the five-day period for filing such an action had passed.
Burk verbalized in her lawsuit that she was an eligible Arizona voter, but officials verbally expressed they discovered she wasn’t registered to vote. She later verbally expressed she mistakenly thought “qualified electors” were people who were merely eligible to vote, and that her voter registration was rescinded because Election workers were unable to verify her address.
There is nothing afore the Court to betoken that Appellant timely contacted the opportune ascendant entities to rectify any quandaries with her voter registration, Arizona Supreme Court Chief Justice Robert Brutinel indited.
An Election challenge … is not the felicitous conveyance to reinstate voter registration.
Brutinel also said that Burk had admitted that she was well vigilant afore the Election that she would not be able to vote in the general Election … There is nothing afore the court to designate that [Burk] timely contacted the opportune ascendant entities to rectify any quandaries with her voter registration.In her petition to the Supreme Court, Burk wanted a auricularly discerning over the question about whether she was an “elector.” Meanwhile, an audit injuctively authorized by the Arizona state Senate of proximately 2.1 million Maricopa County, Arizona, ballots could last for weeks, according to former Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett, the Senate audit liaison.
Bennett verbalized over the weekend that there is “no deadline” and integrated that the Senate has been granted sanction to the state fairgrounds “for as long as we require it.” Earlier this year, the Supreme Court threw out a slew of election-cognate lawsuits, including former President Donald Trump’s last remaining challenge.
