Website targets Arizona with false claim about missing ballots

Published on 30/11/2022 at 16:28

The most populous county in the US state of Arizona has certified its 2022 midterm results, but a conservative website claims the jurisdiction "lost" more than 290,000 ballots cast on November 8. This is false; the article is based on a misreading of data -- local officials say the supposedly missing votes are provisional and mail-in ballots that were returned on Election Day.
