Republican Josh Barnett tweeted Saturday: “The machines were NEVER approved for use. They weren’t certified according to state law! The entire election should be nullified just based off of this!”
Barnett lost the Republican primary race for Arizona’s 1st Congressional District to GOP incumbent Rep. David Schweikert, who led Democrat Jevin Hodge by just 3,102 votes in the general election, according to the state’s unofficial results.
The former GOP candidate referenced a letter from the elections integrity unit of the Arizona Attorney General’s Office demanding a response from the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office “pertaining to issues related to the administration of the 2022 General Election in Maricopa County.”
The letter detailed a number of voter complaints about widespread voting machine malfunctions and printers that suspiciously spat out errors and rejected ballots on Nov. 8.
The Republican pointed to ARS 16-442 (b), a provision in state election law that says, “Machines or devices used at any election for federal, state or county offices may only be certified for use in this state and may only be used in this state if they comply with the help America vote act of 2002 and if those machines or devices have been tested and approved by a laboratory that is accredited pursuant to the help America vote act of 2002.”
