Paul Waldman, The Washington Post Published 10:03 am PST, Friday, November 9, 2018 While much of the post-election attention is being sucked up by vote-counting chaos in Florida (who could have predicted it), there's another Senate race with an ongoing dispute over votes that may have escaped your attention. This race's conclusion might help upend the conventional wisdom about the 2018 election. And guess what, Republicans are suing to prevent all the votes from being counted.

Four local Republican parties filed a lawsuit Wednesday night challenging the state's two biggest counties for allowing voters to help resolve problems with their mail-in ballot signatures after Election Day. If the signature on the voter registration doesn't match that on the sealed envelope, both Maricopa and Pima County allow voters to help them fix, or "cure" it, up to five days after Election Day. Many other counties only allow voters to cure until polls close on Election Day. Only a few thousand votes would be affected by the suit, but every one counts in the … [Read more...] about Judge to hear Arizona GOP lawsuit to limit mail-in ballots in tight Senate race
