The Maricopa County Recorder’s Office has been tight-lipped on details about election day problems that left many voters scrambling to find other polling places because their assigned sites weren’t operable.
Recorder Adrian Fontes has refused to answer media questions for more than a week following the Aug. 28 primary election.
On Tuesday, in an unannounced Facebook Live video, Fontes said his team had prepared a report that would answer questions and provide a timeline of the issues that occurred. He promised to release it by Thursday.
But Thursday, he said he would no longer release the report, based on advice from county lawyers. Fontes again declined to answer questions.
Friday morning, after posting a photo on Twitter of himself taking questions from middle schoolers, Fontes talked briefly with The Arizona Republic.
