 Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone said his office is pouring substantial resources into election security in an effort to handle concerns from officials.

Penzone, a Democrat, told KTAR News 92.3 FM’s Arizona’s Morning News on Thursday that he’s had conversations with Board of Supervisors Chairman Bill Gates and Recorder Stephen Richer — both Republicans — where they shared worries that employees could be put in harm’s way at polling places or the recorder’s office.

“They expressed to me fears and concerns … they have employees who come to work every day tabulating votes trying to make sure that the ballots get out properly,” Penzone said. “All the little fundamental aspects of just running an election and they are now fearful.”
