Arizona’s largest county is under fire for appointing more Democrat poll workers than Republican poll workers.
“The Republican National Committee (RNC) is demanding answers from Maricopa County officials after they appointed fewer Republican poll workers than Democrats,” reports Breitbart.
The demand comes because Maricopa County appointed fewer Republican workers “despite a legal obligation to have an equal number of poll workers,” according to Breitbart News.
“Arizona law requires election officials to hire ‘an equal number’ of Republican and Democrat election inspectors at all voting locations,” reported Breitbart.
“Although Maricopa County Republican Committee chairwoman Mickie Niland provided the county with a list of ‘several hundred’ Republican poll worker names ahead of the primary election, the letter revealed that 11 vote centers ended up with no GOP election inspectors at all,” reported Breitbart.
Eric H. Spencer, who works for a firm that represents the RNC, highlighted a “significant disparity between political parties in the central processing boards utilized at the Maricopa County Tabulation and Election Center (MCTEC) during the primary.”
