Arizona's Maricopa County on Sunday released new data about malfunctions at some of its polling centers on Election Day, dismissing claims that voters were disenfranchised because of the troubles.
Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake of Arizona, who lost to Democrat Katie Hobbs, and others in the GOP took up the matter of county printer malfunctions on Election Day, claiming the problems significantly altered the results — despite Maricopa election officials' insistence that no one was at fault was prevented from voting.
In response to a letter from the Arizona Attorney General's office requesting more information on the matter, county officials on Sunday provided the most detailed data to date showing thousands of affected voters are still casting ballots that have been tabulated.

"Our response is available for the public to read in its entirety and describes how Maricopa County followed state and federal laws to ensure every voter had an opportunity to cast a vote," said Bill Gates (R), chairman of the board, in a statement.
Gates vowed to confirm Maricopa's election campaign by Monday's legal deadline, defying the Lake campaign, which has publicly called for a delay and suggested in court that the issues meet the legal threshold for doing so.
Meanwhile, Arizona Republican attorney general candidate Abraham Hamadeh officially challenged his election result last week over the issues. Hamadeh trails his Democratic rival by 510 votes ahead of an expected recount.
The Hill has reached out to the Lake campaign and Attorney General Mark Brnovich's (R) office for comment.

The criticism stems from malfunctions with printers at some of Maricopa's polling centers, which printed ballots that were too light for tabs to read.
The county said Sunday it had confirmed malfunctions at 43 of the county's 223 voting centers, although it said the number could be as high as 63. The Lake campaign had claimed, based on affidavits in court, that the number was at least 118.
Election officials have insisted affected voters could wait in line until the issue is resolved, cast a ballot at another polling center, or deposit their ballot in a separate box for later tabulation known as "Door 3." Lake's campaign has claimed that some voters pursuing each of these options have struggled.
Lake has claimed the malfunctions resulted in long lines at voting centers that effectively disenfranchised voters.

However, the county's response shows that the majority of polling centers had peak wait times of 15 minutes or less, and wait times at 207 of the county's 223 polling stations never exceeded an hour.
Lake and others in the GOP have also alleged that poll workers failed to properly screen some affected voters who went to vote at a different polling center, meaning they appeared to be fraudulently casting a second ballot and cause it not to be counted.
County officials said Sunday that 206 residents attempted to vote at a second location and 122 of them were not properly screened. Poll workers gave these voters provisional ballots, and election officials eventually decided that all but 13 of them should count.
"Voters frequently request that their ballots be tampered with, and poll workers are very familiar with the process of issuing a new ballot," the county wrote, indicating that it covered check-out procedures in poll worker training.
Arizona's GOP numbers have also expressed doubts that the votes cast in Door 3 were ultimately counted and released videos of voters raising concerns about the backup procedure.
The county said Sunday it checked the difference between the number of voters who checked in at each polling center and the number of ballots counted at each site and found a statewide difference of 170 votes.
"Discrepancies between check-ins and ballots received are not uncommon," the county said in its response, as occasionally voters check in at a polling station but leave before casting a ballot.
