After a week of back and forth between different entities in Pinal County, Councilwoman Julia Gusse has chosen to step back from her attempt to contest the primary election results for Maricopa.
She had launched a complaint last week with Pinal County following a ballot mis-printing issue that affected 412 ballots in the county. The county, while offering estimates of Maricopa’s faulty ballot numbers, will not delineate those numbers further.
“As of this afternoon, my attorney was not provided with a response from the County regarding the ballot errors,” Gusse said in an email late Tuesday. “After much consideration, I have decided to drop this matter and will not be formally contesting this election.”
