A Pima County voter active in Democratic causes has sued elections officials over the presidential preference election, citing numerous irregularities in the March 22 contest.
The lawsuit, filed Friday afternoon in Maricopa County Superior Court, alleges elections officials allowed votes to be cast illegally, cites numerous instances of misconduct and charges there were errors in vote counting. The suit seeks to overturn the election certification and any other relief the court might find necessary. A preliminary hearing has been set for April 19.
The lawsuit names the elections officers in all 15 counties, as well as Secretary of State Michele Reagan. But it focuses most of its complaints on Maricopa, Pima and Santa Cruz counties.
