Activists Question Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio Election over Uncounted Ballots in Maricopa County

Activists in Arizona are challenging the re-election of controversial sheriff Joe Arpaio, citing a large amount of uncounted ballots. Arpaio has faced widespread accusations of discrimination and civil rights abuses against Latinos as well as financial misconduct. Election officials in Maricopa County have acknowledged some 415,000 early and provisional ballots remain uncounted, a total that could wipe out Arpaio’s election victory of 88,000 votes. Activists have been holding vigils outside the Maricopa County Recorder’s Office, demanding that the votes be counted and alleging Election Day irregularities.
