McSally challenge to provisional ballot count

Posted Nov 10, 2014, 3:23 pm

A request by GOP candidate Martha McSally for a restraining order to halt the count of provisional ballots in Pima County was denied by a judge Monday. McSally, up just 341 votes, has had her lead slowly eroded as additional ballots have been tallied in her challenge to U.S. Rep. Ron Barber.

McSally’s lawyers said Sunday they were prepared to go to court to halt the processing of provisional ballots, saying they are challenging the validity of provisional ballot forms that were not signed by elections officials.
