A group of attorneys wants a judge to order Secretary of State Michele Reagan to craft a plan to ensure next month’s primary is not beset by the same problems that plagued the presidential preference election.
In an emergency motion filed Thursday, the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law pointed out that Maricopa County election officials set up just 60 polling places for the March election. The result was some voters having to wait five hours to cast a ballot.
Attorneys for the group also said Reagan shares the blame, saying Arizona law makes her responsible for minimizing voter wait times.
