Judge Rules Against Saving Ballots from Contested Pima County, AZ, Election
Claims lack of jurisdiction to order retention of ballots from 2006 election, even if counting them might reveal results were ‘rigged’
Opponents of counting argue ballots should now be destroyed…

If a judge’s ruling in Pima County, Arizona, stands, ballots from the long-contested 2006 Regional Transit Authority (RTA) election will be destroyed, and there will never be a definitive answer as to whether or not the election may have been rigged, as critics have charged.

It’s too late for the actual results of the election to be changed, but knowing whether the election was tampered with is critical to guaranteeing the integrity of future elections, according to local Election Integrity advocates who won a landmark lawsuit, resulting in the unprecedented release of terrabytes of Diebold databases. The databases, containing information on how voters voted, were found by the judge in the suit, to be public records.
