"Using the same to verify or cure the early ballots that they were using before you have a headache yet. So let me just let me let me show they're doing what they were doing. So let me just get this straight. The Arizona Republicans say that Adrian Fonterra's Maricopa County recorder cannot be trusted to count votes because he's a democrat. I don't know what they want other booted. I'm not sure they say he's destroyed evidence. They got no proof of that. They had a lawsuit that went before. A judge today challenging the way counties in Arizona handle mail in ballots, pending signature verification. I get so so the so the outcome is this from that lawsuit. Nothing changes do her job you're going. Yeah. Okay. Good. Because if the Republicans had their way, we stopped counting ballots, and you know, when we find out who won cinema versus mic Sally in the year twenty five twenty five maybe maybe maybe. I told you I I've been saying all week Arizona elections are a disaster. If it's not one thing, it's another if it's waiting in line seven hours, and you you have lunch and dinner in line while you're trying to vote if it's in in August, we got sixty polling places that they don't open, right? Nothing works. They don't train their people Ribes a mess. So is the lawsuit over or is that right? I don't know. I don't know. I think the Democrats and Republicans came to an agreement to do exactly what you're doing and not to change anything. The lawmakers do. Yeah. The legislature. Actually work and figure out how to make Arizona elections better. Good lord. Well, they have to. I mean, there is a real problem here. We're not trying to make light of a of a real problem. There is a real problem. And what you don't want people to drop off their votes saying, I wonder if it really matters. You're listening to the big four four. The.

"Out is his middle name blurred, raise the level of accusations against Maricopa County recorder Adrian Fonterra's saying, hey, that guy who's who's counting the votes in Maricopa County. Yeah, he's a democrat. He can't be trusted to administer elections in Arizona Adrian Fonterra's. What do you think of this Jonathan lines, Mr. lines in his hyperbole are bad for our democracy? I hope that folks all over the political spectrum will understand whether you're a tea party patriot. Or whether you've got a pink knit cap on your head. We are all Americans. I our votes are all going to get counted under my administration. So if you're just joining us, welcome to the big four at four because goodness gracious, we have Arizona Republicans going to war with COPA county. Over the cinema mic. Sally race. We've got state Republican chairman Jonathan lines sane Adrian Fonterra's Maricopa County recorder he premeditated destruction of evidence after voting irregularities. No proof. Yeah. Wait a minute. What does that mean? Oh, what it means was they asked him to keep certain ballots in case. There was a problem. Some kind of concern there was a lawsuit and Mr. Fontes said I can't do that. I have to count every ballot. I have to count every vote. I can't say, okay. These ballots. I'm going to keep over here and not count them in the case of some kind of lawsuit. He can't do that. He's got to count every vote as they as they either come in or as they get to them in this election process. So I totally get what he's doing. He's doing what is supposed to be done getting the votes counted. I don't know why this is all of a sudden a big issue that everyone. Needs to be suing over and oh, by the way, the Republican party just agreed that this was the process that everybody should be going under where in the world is the controversy. That's a great point to. I still don't understand the basis of this lawsuit is going after Maricopa and Pima counties, not the thirteen other counties that do it probably don't count all the votes or do it very differently or or kinda sort of in the same way. We know Maricopa County we know that Adrian Fonterra's don't put anything next to his name. It's just Adrian Fundus. He's the guy. He's a democrat. Correct. Right. He's also doing his jobs, and that's why I've never understood why the lawsuit ever came about Maricopa and Pima. So just because Adrian font is is a democrat means he can't administer elections in Arizona. That's what it sounds. So what happens you can't do that job? You're Protestant eight it's just ridiculous. So what happened from nineteen eighty eight to twenty seventeen when Republican Helen pursell served. As the county recorder for Maricopa County, did the Democrats say, she can't be trusted. I don't remember. She's a Republican. I don't remember that. I don't remember that either. Go back to two thousand sixteen with all the long lines and all the problems voting. I never heard a Republican say she can't be trusted. Here's the bottom line. I just heard that you shouldn't have to wait seven hours to vote. Right. And that's true. Republicans are scared. They're gonna lose the Senate seat. That's it. So what they're doing is. They're suing is they're throwing people under the bus there. Petrified. You're gonna lose. Here's what I would tell the Republican party. Why don't you put your big boy pants on? Okay. And actually see what the vote says about that. And then sue how about that? I don't even know don't start a lawsuit unless there's something that if there is a voter irregular. If there's something to regular about the voting I am in seen any destruction of evidence. I don't I don't they have no case against Maricopa County recorder agent today. He premeditated the destruction of of of evidence. But here's why I say, wait until the election is decided, and then do it because the elections aren't going their way. So then they're going to sue right? But this is why I say wait until everything is done. Because if you don't we're talking about this people hear it. They have here at they hear what they wanna hear does your vote count the next time. Well, remember back in two thousand eighteen when blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, and I can't really remember. But man, I don't know. Whether my vote counts, maybe creates that creates a systemic. What disenfranchisement of Arizona voters? And now Trump is getting into it by saying we need to have another election. President Trump on Twitter just out in Arizona, signatures, don't match electoral corruption of a new election. We must protect our democracy. If there's a problem, I'm all for investigating it. But just because Kirstin cinemas winning by nine thousand votes doesn't mean that there's fraud. Oh, gosh, doesn't mean that there's corruption. You know, what it means? It means Arezzo purple. That's what it means. And by the way, this election is far from over at five o'clock. We're gonna have another vote. Dump Nick Sally could take the lead today, by the way, who was voted governor Doug Ducey what political parties he affiliate publican? Yeah. Font is a democrat. And counted the votes just fuss. They didn't complain about the gubernatorial race. Oh, that's right. That's right. That's right. Because you one. Yeah. I know man. Well, that's politics, though, that is politics. I mean what we're seeing in Florida. Now what we're seeing in Georgia. If your person doesn't win throw as much legally and lob those bombs at confusion, and so something has to get we saw this with the two thousand election to lawsuit after lawsuit after lawsuit Weill finally wound up in the supreme court. There was a reason for that. Because you hanging chads. So raise band name by two thousand was known as the hanging chads election. Yes. Okay. This Arizona election is going to be is going to be called the cure ballots election, right because everybody's talking about cure ballots. And you're in your car saying, I don't know what the heck that is sure. I'll just say I I have actually written it down. So I could read it verbatim. So I understand it and everybody else can cure ballots means to fix the ballot. If the voters signature doesn't match the signature on the envelope. And basically what happens is they will contact the voter, which is what they're supposed to do Maricopa and Pima counties allow the curing of ballots up to five days after the election. Now that kind of drives me crazy because I want this stuff done on election night, a lot of places around around America. They get it done. We wait nine days. Right. And it drives me nuts. The one thing I will say about Adrian Pontes. I've been killing the guy on the air for the last three days because nine days. It's ridiculous. Do you make it too easy for people to vote? How about stop letting people take their green envelopes and drop them off? It's then it's backlog. The one thing about font is is he actually wants every vote counted? And he's doing the other counties in Arizona who don't care or. Interpret or interpret the law very differently. The only cure, I know about is cured ham or bacon. Let's talk about Dan. Do you like cured ham or cured bacon? I yes. Yes. To bow. Come on. You gotta like one better. Becky, Lynn, you ever cure a ham. My grandfather did. Yeah. What is it? What does it mean? When bacon is cured. It means it's aged. And it's it's it's basically allowed to. Ride. Right. You dry. You put something on it like salt or sugar, and it gives it a flavor and it preserves it preserves the same time bags. Yeah. You get into all covered in mold scrape it off. Hold on still hold on. I you know, how when you talk about food you get like, a hunger. Pain I got one coming on hold on. Hear that. That's my stomach. Did you hear that was awesome? I heard that. I did you guys hear that?

"Here is owners afternoon. News with MAC and Gaydos. Four at four at four at four. Stories. Story. What? Thickly we opened up the locations almost all of them at five AM for our staff to get in there. And. Pretty solidly right around right around six o'clock or almost all of our locations. All right. That's Adrian font has Maricopa County recorder. He says things are going smooth. There have been a couple of hiccups. It looks like this is clearly better than the last time so far, but it is four o'clock and people will be getting off work to vote will the second round of voting go. Well today, I think you can point to earlier today. There were a couple of glitches. What was it the system I guess that is was down for voters to check in at the polls at went off around eleven thirty AM they tried to get it back online. And did there were a couple of polling places? Not ready to go at six AM. You know, the strangest one that's made national news is one polling place was actually foreclosed on overnight right overnight. So they locked the door. And so people tried to put in the equipment the night before. And they didn't have the key. And he couldn't get in so far so good. It's gonna be glitch. But nothing like twenty sixteen August, I mean. Okay. Nothing to that extent. But yes, there are some glitches we s Adrian Fonterra's. This question you give an interesting answer. Because August, you're right. Did not go. Well, was it beneficial for you to go through a bit of a mess? The first time around a few months ago because today, obviously things are much improved. Oh, yeah. I mean, you you gotta break some eggs to make an omelet and still to this day. I'm very unhappy about the way that August worked out, but frankly, was to a degree of blessing in disguise if you wanna look at that silver lining, right? We we did set records again, we did work with a whole whole bunch of voters, and and get those votes facilitated. But you know, it didn't happen. Very very well. And that's unfortunate. And I'm still not completely happy. I don't know that I'll ever get over it. But the reality is he was a bunch of opportunities to look at things a whole different perspective, and we have a far fewer assumptions because. We've gone through it. We have far fewer guesses because we've gone through it and every step along the way is another opportunity to improve. You know, our department is full of people with decades of experience. And and they've all continuously worked hard to improve the systems. We've taken a big leap forward in the last two years, and that change is going to have to take a minute or two to settle in. And I think we're well on our way to having one of the best election systems in the United States of America. It is amazing. And this is coming from the secretary of state's office that day before the election. We've already seen more ballots than all of twenty fourteen. I mean, this could be one of the biggest midterm elections in the history, not only of Arizona, but of the country now and do we have Trump to thank for that? Or is it a referendum against Trump? We'll have to wait and see. Yeah. Fontana says things are going well at the polls it looks like it's it's much improved. From the last time. That's good for everybody. You're listening to the big four and four MAC and Gaydos. We bring you four big blockbusters stories in the first twenty minutes of the four o'clock hour..

Also, some rideshare companies and restaurants are offering promotions and freebies for people who have voted today.

Arguably the rideshare companies are offering an incentive something of value. However, they claim that it's not conditioned on actually voting. It's just a right to the polls Lindstrom says that if a company or an individual violates this federal law that they could be. Find or even sent to jail..

And there's there's props on the ballot that you can read about it KTAR dot com. They're they're too complicated and convoluted run down every single one of them for you today. But there's a there's a couple of the does seem to be pretty contentious. And by the way, speaking of a technical issues, we seem to be having a little bit of a problem with your signal there. So we'll we'll check back in with Jim cross here in a little while, by the way, the other one of the other things that you'll be able to vote on statewide is the governor's race. And this is this is pretty funny. He was on with MAC and Gaydos or he was on with us yesterday too. But he was MAC and Gaydos yesterday, and I really feel like this has been. A race. That has not been that tough the win for him. Here's the governor on with a MAC and Gaydos yesterday. I heard you out a harder time running for senior class president than you did against David Garcia. Is there any truth to that? Really? Tomorrow. Tomorrow's election day. We're sponsored in the state. Spill wanted to get out and vote. Wow. Why he saying that because I honestly think David Garcia in some ways gave up. I really do. I don't I don't know. How else to explain it? He did not reach out to Arizona's morning news his campaign, anyway, never reached out to ask to be on the show. Even after we had governor Doug Ducey on.

"Your news. All right. Coming up. Doug ducey. The governor of Arizona is making good on his promise to get Martha mcsally who's running for Senate on the line. We will have that inter for you for you in the four o'clock hour, maybe the big four four perhaps right now, though, we're talking election. We'll see a blue a red wave. Yeah. I think what's interesting today. At least if you're listening to the show, you got Adrian Fonterra's Maricopa County recorder is in charge of the elections. Are they going to do a better job? Then August, we've given you governor Doug Ducey also Sally's coming up. We've asked Pearson cinema to join us. We're hopeful that she will US could interesting question is is gonna turn. It was the Blue Wave gonna hit Arizona. No. I don't think. So I think you have a lot of I think you have more Democrats voting this year in Arizona than ever. I think you're gonna get a split. I think you're getting a third Republicans a third Democrats in a third independence. And if let's say, you're Kirstin cinema. Do you really need a Blue Wave? No. You just need the blue to vote for you. And you need some of the independence. That's what you need. So I don't think I don't think it at least here in Arizona. A Blue Wave is is necessary. It's not imminent. I don't think it's eminent. I don't think it's necessary. If you are a cinema fan make sense we? Yeah. I mean, we we asked John hook from FOX ten almost an hour ago. Now is this election about Trump? Well, yeah. Of course, this is. A lot of people are going to vote not necessarily for the candidate. No, no offense. But they're going to vote whether they like what Trump has done for the country or not. It's either a repudiation or it is an affirmation on how Trump is handled your wallet, the border know, many different things, it may not be for first in cinema herself or Martha mcsally herself. But how you don't or do like the president? But see this election is about everything it seems. It's about the soul of America. If you don't like what Trump has done, and you don't like how he talks, and you don't like how he treats people you're going to vote for a lot of Democrats. But if you're voting for your wallet, you're gonna vote for a lot of Republicans because well Trump has done a good job with the economy if your voting for immigration don't upset the apple cart. Yeah. I mean, if you're voting for immigration. I don't know you're probably gonna vote Republican because Trump wants the wall and he wants to the military down the border. I think this thing this election is not just about one or two things. It's about ten or twenty people could be voting. One way or the other because of the cavenaugh situation, we just don't know.

"Ninety two three SM. Get some perspective. Bruce St James and Pamela Hughes. Next Tuesday election day yesterday was the deadline to mail your ballot in. So here's a question. Should we could we go to an all male in system knowing that? For general elections are general elections. We see about seventy five percent roughly, and we have to wait, obviously for this one to be over. But in previous ones, we see about seventy five percent of all votes cast or cast by mail. So do we need to continue to man polling sites. Voting machines. All this stuff for twenty five percent of the vote. It's an interesting discussion to be had because you do have states in this country right now that are all mail in ballot. It does happen Oregon Colorado in Washington. Okay. And the county recorder for Maricopa Adrian Fonterra's recently did in interview with the Arizona Republic, and it was a little nugget that came out of it that I find quite interesting when it comes to an all male election all mail in ballot election. What does Adrian volunteers think about that? And he said. He would absolutely like to move to an all election that means that all registered revolt get their ballot by mail, but he's not the one who gets to make that decision. The secretary. Make is not the one who would make that decision. That would be our state lawmakers. There would have to make that. So put things into perspective here in Maricopa County during the primary that just took place here in August. Eighty five percent of voters cast their ballot by mail higher than would be general election. That's that's a lot. Now, you go back in November of last year a year ago, the recorder's office ran all male elections for more than twenty five cities and towns without any major issues. So they didn't have any polling places. I'm assuming these are going to be pretty rural areas. Low number of voters were they made a determination. Hey, there's only forty of you take it. Okay. So go to an all male in election. Eighty five percent of Maricopa County voters in the primary cast their mallet by mail house majority and the recorder's office. Ran several all male elections for more than twenty five cities and towns without major issues audit. So it's really interesting when you take a look at all of that because we have to take a look to the states that are actually already doing this. You mentioned Washington or getting Colorado. And in Washington, you had a Republican secretary of state. So this is the person who's in charge of Saint elections, right? And what they found out is that initially in Washington the state allowed voters to register for permanent absentee ballots beginning in the early nineties by ninety six more than half of all votes cast came in through the mail, kind of sound familiar in some of the states with more rural counties. It didn't make financial sense to continue operating polling places. So many voters had already cast their ballots via mail-in they were. Seeing turnout as high as ninety percent among absentee voters in some small elections. So they saw the confusion of running two separate elections and went all to mail in ballot is are we seeing a sign of what's to come in. Arizona. Okay. So play play it out. We hear the advantages of voting by mail, right? It's more convenient. You have more time. I remember the discussion about if you go to a polling centre next Tuesday. This is huge view, the filled it out by mail coup sides, all these takes time it takes time to do it. But also, there's a there's a stress that comes up and fill this out. Are you doing it accurately as opposed to sitting out your kitchen table and being able to Google things if you will? And and have your materials with you. So you you I believe you get a more accurate ballot. When you do it by mail because you have time to fill it out as opposed to you have this time, you're in the police, but what are the downsides to all bail in? What what would be the what would be the argument against getting rid of polling sites in Arizona entirely show. The I don't know if he's still current, but but a couple of years ago, the Republican secretary of state of Colorado, which also does an all male and ballot had some concerns. His concerns are that it's creating a potential for what he calls a single point of failure. Meaning the US postal service. He says, you know, the postal service is cutting back on services for cost cutting measure measures. And he says that there is security questions as well that same day voter registration, which is Colorado's one of only a hand. Title of states that actually allow voters saying, you know, sign up and voter church their address at the polls, but they wouldn't have been able to do that. It definitely boosts turn out. And the Washington Secretary of state says the security aspect of it is actually a little higher. She claims because they will scan they'd leave a look, and they check every single signature that's on a ballot to the voter registration file. So she says that there's a high level of confidence that the ballots were issued in counted and were were cast by the voter. But in Colorado, he said that they had to work overtime to collect mail from the central processing facility to meet the election day deadline, and they found some three hundred sixty five ballots that otherwise would have been thrown out for arriving too late. Here's my here's my conspiracy theory. I think county recorder Adrian Fonterra's is in favor of all mail in ballots for for a selfish reason. As well. To admit to me. It's okay. That you're speculating here conspiracy. Okay. Let's be clear, okay. On primary election date. We had reports of issues at specific polling centres everything from machines weren't plugged in to people not being on the role to being told they couldn't vote cetera. Okay. You go all male in. What's the argument the argument on election day, who's complaining, you don't know? What you don't know? So you're saying there's a lack of transparency. What if all of the quote unquote, problems on an election day at polling sites? We have a similar percentage of problems that happened with mail in ballots. But how would I know it's a fair point to make. I don't think that that's why county recorder Adrian Fonterra's would I like to go to this? I think nobody would argue on election day anymore that they screwed up. The election y'all mailed it in. Yeah, we're counting on why. What are your thoughts on this, folks? Would you like to see Arizona Goto an all male and ballots system? Give us a call on the open mic line six zero two two hundred two seven three three six zero two two hundred two seven three three. I don't have a fundamental problem. I wanna make voting easier not less. I think we make it pretty darn easy in Arizona, though. Should.
