Arizona Sends Out 6,000 Incorrect Ballots Weeks Before Election


At a glance

  • Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, a Democrat now running for governor, is acknowledging that as many as 6,000 voters got a mail ballot with only federal races.
  • Hobbs, whose campaign is staked largely on defending the integrity of the 2020 elections, said Tuesday the mistake was the result of a database glitch.

    She also said affected voters will receive the correct ballot shortly.

    Kari Lake, the Arizona GOP gubernatorial nominee, who has made concerns about voting irregularities and fraud a centerpiece of her campaign, has called on Hobbs to step aside from overseeing the midterms while she’s on the ballot.

    The Hobbs-Lake race is essentially deadlock, according to the most recent polls average.
