Arizona hospital officials pleaded Tuesday for people to avoid large Thanksgiving dinners as soaring coronavirus infections put pressure on the state’s medical system.

Banner Health, Arizona’s largest hospital chain, forecasts it will hit 125 percent of its licensed capacity around Dec. 4.

Arizona Republican Party Chairwoman Kelli Ward filed a lawsuit Tuesday seeking an inspection of both mail-in ballot signatures and duplicated ballots in metro Phoenix, alleging election officials didn’t give legal observers enough access to ballot processing.

The lawsuit filed against President-elect Joe Biden’s 11 electors in Arizona also alleged some suburbs on the southeastern edge of Maricopa County had an unusually high number of duplicated ballots — and that the election results in that area were “strongly inconsistent” with voter registration and historical voting data.
