Arizona State Sen. Wendy Rogers said a court has finally determined that Maricopa County broke the state’s election law in 2020 and 20222. Rogers wrote about the Arizona judge’s recent ruling that declared the state’s current mail-in ballot signature verification process to be unlawful and that the law was violated in both 2020 and 2022.

“It feels good to see what we have been saying be verified by a judge,” Rogers wrote. “They broke the law.”

According to The Epoch Times, Yavapai County Superior Court Judge John Napper issued the ruling in a case brought by Restoring Integrity and Trust in Elections against Arizona Secretary of State Adrian Fontes.

State law requires county recorders to match mail-ballot signatures with signatures in the voter’s registration record, but Fontes instructed them to use a broader and less reliable universe of comparison signatures, RITE said in a Sept. 5 state on the ruling.

“Fontes lied,” Rogers said. “Fontes broke the law.”

According to the Arizona Capitol Times, Napper will not have the last word on the matter. Napper rejected efforts by Fontes to have the lawsuit thrown out.
