Arizona Judge Declines Request to Improve Election Security, Citing Timing Reasons

• Republican Daily

Yavapai County Superior Court Judge John Napper denied Republican Attorney General Mark Brnovich's request to ask Democratic Secretary of State Katie Hobbs to improve the election procedure manual for the 2022 elections on Friday.

"At this point in the game, there is no mechanism for the Court to assist the parties in constructing an EMP  which complies with [the law] within the timelines of the statute," Napper wrote in Friday's ruling, reported The Associated Press. "The Complaint was filed far too late for this to occur without disrupting elections that have already begun."
