MOHAVE COUNTY, AZ (August 2, 2022) — Mohave County Elections Director Allen Tempert says the primary election in the county had a few minor issues, but overall, it was a success as approximately 14,000 went to the polls and almost 26,000 early ballots were in the first posting on election night.
There was one difficulty in some Lake Havasu City precincts when the printers used to authenticate voters to receive a ballot, malfunctioned in the morning. Poll workers had to sign the required slip of paper by hand, which is not really different from the manner in which it used to be done. It only slowed things down a short while and all was working properly by 10am.
Tempert said “no election is 100% perfect. Our staff and volunteers can be proud of their accomplishment. We’re going to be busy properly documenting everything over the next few days and then, we’ll concentrate on the upcoming general election in November. I’m confident that we’ll have a fair and well-run fall election in Mohave County.”
