Tucson man sues over state primary results

  • Updated

A Tucson man has filed a lawsuit challenging Arizona’s presidential primary results, saying voter registration and Election Day balloting problems render them illegal.

John Brakey’s lawsuit seeks an order rescinding certification of the results and remedies that might include a new election.

The suit, filed Friday in Maricopa County Superior Court, names all 15 Arizona counties and Secretary of State Michele Reagan.

Hillary Clinton won Arizona’s Democratic primary, and Donald Trump won on the Republican side.

Maricopa County saw huge lines after officials cut the number of polling places and turnout exceed expectations. Statewide, voters complained they were registered with a party, but the rolls showed they were independents and ineligible to vote.
