A report from the America First Policy Institute found that there may be an 8,241-vote
discrepancy between those who cast votes in Maricopa County’s 2022 election and the number of ballots that were counted. This is “about 29.4 times” the difference between the contested attorney general’s race, the report stated, which Democrat Kris Mayes won by 280 votes. Mohave County Judge Lee F. Jantzen denied Abe Hamadeh’s request for a new hearing in his election challenge. The biggest total discrepancy was in Maricopa County.
