Report Blames Underfunding For Long Lines During Arizona's 2016 Presidential Primary

A new report aims to show the internal issues that led to people standing for hours waiting to vote in Arizona’s presidential primary in March of 2016.

The Maricopa County Recorder’s Office had Jeffrey Mason analyze what happened. The report concluded under-funding and limited resources caused those long lines and disenfranchised voters. But Mason says the recorder’s office refused to publish the report, so he quit his job and took it to the Arizona Republic instead.

The Show was joined by the Arizona Republic's Dustin Gardiner who spoke with Mason.

Mark Brodie is a co-host of The Show, KJZZ’s locally produced news magazine. Since starting at KJZZ in 2002, Brodie has been a host, reporter and producer, including several years covering the Arizona Legislature, based at the Capitol.
