The Coconino County Board of Supervisors has canvassed the 2022 election results in a special meeting this morning. County election’s officials say out of nearly 70-thousand early ballots that were issued, 42,330 were accepted and counted and 295 were rejected. Officials say the reason for the rejections varied. Twenty ballots were missing signatures, 29 were signed by someone else, 27 had a different signature, 25 attempted to cast two ballots, only one counted, six had empty envelopes and 188 were received too late. Over 35-hundred ballots couldn’t be delivered by the post office. The official county canvass will be sent to the Arizona Secretary of State for the state certification. There will be automatic recounts in Arizona as required by Arizona state law due to a margin of point-five percent. Coconino County Elections will be involved in recounts for the two eligible races: superintendent of public instruction and attorney general. No local races or ballot questions specific to Coconino County need to be recounted. Secretary of State officials will be in Flagstaff on December 7th to certify elections equipment before the start of the recount.
