UPDATE: Republicans Voluntarily Dismiss Their E-Day Suit Re: Tabulator Problems

(5/16/23, PLEASE NOTE: If you are looking for the most recent Minute Entry or filings in the Kari Lake Election contest, please click here.)

Facing a status hearing tomorrow, Republicans today voluntarily dismissed their Election Day lawsuit about the problems faced by Maricopa County voters when many Vote Center tabulators were not able to read the timing marks printed by the ballot printers. 

Republicans had sought to keep Vote Centers open past 7pm to permit voters to return to cast a tabulatable ballot. Judge Tim Ryan denied the motion, noting that there was no evidence that voters had been precluded from casting a ballot, even if it was not going to be tabulated on the spot. (Ballots were put into a slot to permit them to either be tabulated at the County elections center later or to be hand-duplicated/tabulated.)
