Arizona Supreme Court makes decision on Kari Lake election lawsuit

Published in Blog on March 23, 2023 by Brianna Kraemer

Of the seven claims brought by Kari Lake in a lawsuit surrounding the 2022 Arizona election, signature verification is the one item the Arizona Supreme Court sided with Lake on in a Wednesday decision. 

Republican Kari Lake faced Democrat Katie Hobbs in the 2022 gubernatorial race, losing by about 17,000 votes. After alarming problems on Election Day, Lake filed a lawsuit with seven allegations of ballot counting issues.

The Supreme Court determined that an appeals court wrongly discarded Kari Lake's assertion about the signature verification process. The lower court misinterpreted her challenge as a dispute over the policies rather than how they were applied.

This means the lower court must re-examine the signature verification procedures, which Lake asserts Maricopa County failed to follow. 

The lower court also ruled that Lake filed her claims too late, and the high court stated “Lake could not have brought this challenge before the election.”

“I am thrilled that the Supreme Court has agreed to give our signature verification evidence the appropriate forum for the evaluation it deserves. For years signatures have been a third rail for Maricopa County,” Lake said in a statement.

She added that this violation of signature verification procedure resulted in tens of thousands of illegal ballots being approved and counted.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention to proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington DC.

I support Convention of States; a national movement to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of an Article V convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

I ask that you support Convention of States and consider becoming a co-sponsor. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have:
