KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP) — For the second time in nearly four months, officials in a northwestern Arizona county are rejecting a proposal to hand-count all ballots in the 2024 election cycle. The option was floated as an alternative to relying on electronic tabulating equipment. The 3-2 vote by the Mohave County Board of Supervisors against the proposal came a day after Democratic Attorney General Kris Mayes said approving the measure would mean directing election workers to violate the law. She warned her office would file a lawsuit if the measure was approved. A deputy county attorney told board members there’s no law specifically authorizing the proposed hand count.
