Responding to reports of voters waiting in line for hours to cast their votes in Arizona’s primary Tuesday, the mayor of the state capital is asking the federal government to investigate the distribution of polling locations that may have put undue burden on minorities’ ability to vote.

Voting in Maricopa County, the state’s most populous county where Phoenix is located, lasted until after midnight, more than five hours after polls officially closed.

In a letter sent Wednesday to Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton said that the ratio in polling locations in white communities were “far more favorable” than in parts of Maricopa County with higher minority populations, and resulted in hours-long waits and possibly many voters choosing not to vote because of the long lines. Stanton also decried the decrease in the number of total polling locations in 2016 compared with the 2012 and 2008 presidential primaries.

“Because of the unacceptably disparate distribution of polling locations, I respectfully request the U.S. Department of Justice investigate what took place in Maricopa County to ensure all voters are treated equally under the law,” Stanton wrote.

    I am wondering just who is supposed to have benefited from this claim. Don’t Democrats ahd Republicans have different polling places. And if all Mexicans are supposed to vote for Democrats, why would anyone care whether minorities could vote in the Republican primary unless they were given instructions to cross over for a particular candidate. And who would that be?
    Follow the money. And who has the money? Trump.

    Right-There is no problem-People need to get their acts together is all-it’s is their own fault! I voted by mail-Wonder exactly who is causing this now??

    And when will they get an answer? After someone is already elected President?
    This happened during Obama’s run for president. Dead people voting, in 4 states!!
    Illegals being given money to vote and then driven to other states to vote.
    After he was sworn in, they proved this all did happen and more. Acorn was really big into this. They were fined and went out of business. Bull, all they did was change their name.

      I want the National Guard to be at all polling places for the November elections, and purple or whatever long lasting dye be used on right thumb. If right thumb is missing use left, or ear lobe or whatever. We have about become a third world nation, we need to adopt some of their methods. Any ideas as to how to get this done?
      It really needs to be done in Florida, Ohio, NC, Colorado, Pennsylvania, and Illinois, nowhere there has been gross irregularities.

Minorities get a free ride in all aspects while the middle class, working people, get the shaft. RIGHT!! WELL, minority is determined mostly by numbers. Correct! THERE ARE MORE TAKERS THAN GIVERS WHICH MAKES THE WORKING CLASS THE MINORITY AND SHOULD BE RECEIVING ALL THE BENEFITS BECAUSE WE ARE THE MINORITY!!!!!

    Excerpts:

    Judge Andrew Hanen issued a ruling against Obama’s directive for DHS to stop deportation procedures against illegals. His 123-page opinion states clearly that the DHS was not given any ‘discretion by law’ to grant 4.3 million removable aliens ‘legal presence.'” Judge Hanen wrote, “In fact, the law mandates that these illegally-present individuals be removed.”

    …while it is ILLEGAL FOR ANYONE WHO IS NOT A CITIZEN to vote in US elections, under severe penalties,

    the Democrats hope that enough fraudulent votes will be cast to create overwhelming confusion to electoral outcomes as to make corrections a prohibitively expensive and drawn out process.

    —–

    Add to that the fact that through massive voter fraud from refugees granted asylum, visa recipients, states issuing driver’s licenses and ID cards to illegals and the Supreme Court decision that nobody needs to show proof-of-citizenship when registering to vote and when casting a vote, especially by mail-in ballot, the votes of legitimate American citizens could be permanently nullified.

    ​There seems to be only one solution on the horizon if the states themselves will act. The state legislatures of Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and any Republican majority northern states must pass 
legislation making it a state crime for any non-citizen to vote in any election held in that state, violations to be punishable by five years and a $100,000.00 fine.
 If the states can’t check their citizenship when they register there is nothing to stop the states from checking afterwards.​

    k so we are asking the government again….to solve a problem…that they…created…..why would they want to investigate themselves….just say…

    • Intelligal

      STOP!

    I wonder why the Democrats did not investigate the widespread voter cheating for Obama in 2008? Hmmmmmmmmm! He ended up in the White House, when prescients reported 100% votes for Obama, when prescients reported 108% of registered voters voted, when dead people voted, when pets voted via absentee ballots, when Obama’s Motor Voter (ACORN) was bussed around to vote repeatedly, and much more, why no investigations from the reports?

      Demorats don’t investigate themselves.

      That is business as usual; they go from one unemployment spot to another and collect there as well as multiple welfare sites, make way more money than if they actually worked; plus they don’t pay any taxes; well trained professional leach’s!

      2012 reports were even worse, especially in Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Colorado. Unreal figures, just does not hapoennthatnway. Overseas military not counted in 200 orn2012, they did not a rice in time! Yea, I believe that, too. I still want investigations on three voting and proper vetting. My research has Cruz as not eligible, he is not a Natural born citizen as required by the Constitution. Rubio, Jindal, and rising star, SC Gov Nicki Haley are all anchor babies, not one parent was a US citizen when they were born. A Natural born citizen is born on US soil to two US citizen parents, period. US military bases and US Embassies also qualify as US soil.
