Former AZ Supreme Court chief justice leading investigation into Election Day printer issues
Former state Supreme Court Chief Justice Ruth McGregor will lead an independent investigation into printer problems at some polling locations in Maricopa County on Election Day.
McGregor has helmed similar inquiries, such as a 2019 investigation into issues with locks on state prison cell doors.
Maricopa County officials said printer settings had caused ballots not to be printed dark enough for tabulation machines to read.
Board Supervisor Bill Gates said the same printer settings were used in the August primary and the November general election, except they only experienced problems on Nov. 8.
Although losing gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake has claimed in court that the problems were intentionally caused, no actual evidence of tampering has been produced.
