8th Suit Over Presidential Election Results In Arizona Fails

A Pinal County judge has dismissed a lawsuit that sought to decertify Democratic President-elect Joe Biden’s win in Arizona.

That marks the failure of the eighth case that challenged the presidential election results in the state. Judge Kevin White concluded Staci Burk wasn’t a registered voter at the time that she filed her lawsuit and made her legal challenge after the five-day period for contesting election results had passed. 

The decision came a day after Arizona’s 11 Electoral College members cast their votes for Biden, who won the state over Republican President Donald Trump by more than 10,000 votes.
