On Election Day, Maricopa County, Arizona was at the focus of controversy.
Residents were allegedly turned away from polling stations, while others were had to wait in queues with wait times exceeding several hours in some instances. The Western Journal received over 20 unique recordings of Arizona voters detailing the numerous obstacles they experienced when attempting to vote.
According to election officials, twenty percent of voting stations around the county had defective vote tabulators.
Multiple reports indicate that those authorities understated the severity of the situation. According to further reporting by The Washington Post and KNTX-TV, 70 sites, or more than 30 percent, experienced problems with tabulators.
Later, Rasmussen Reports stated that even this figure was a gross underestimation, alleging that 48 percent of polling places had malfunctioning voting machines on Election Day.
Update: New – 48% of Maricopa election centers had printer or tabulator malfunctions on election day, not the previously estimated 20%. And no such widespread issues were reported during the early voting period that preceded election day and used the very same equipment. Wow. https://t.co/EEzH2LbcZs

Currently the line at Deer Valley Airport to wait for the TABULATORS. Poll workers encouraging people to use the drop boxes. NOBODY IS LEAVING. Wait times are close to 2 hours to scan your ballot. #RedTsunami2022 @KariLake @AbrahamHamadeh @RealMarkFinchem @christianllamar pic.twitter.com/UwM0LN47az

One of these election officials, Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Chairman Bill Gates, vanished on the same day.
We now see why.
CNN said on Tuesday that Gates was relocated to a “undisclosed location” after threats were made against his safety.
Under the protection of the local sheriff’s office, Gates spent the night of November 8 at the site while Maricopa County remained mired in scandal over its voting irregularities.
