This morning, Ron Barber for Congress asked both Pima and Cochise County to count the votes of registered voters in Southern Arizona whose votes have not been counted and should be.

In Cochise County, the Barber campaign offered signed declarations from nine voters whose votes have not been counted. Additionally, the campaign contends that 11 other voters whose early ballots were not signed should have the opportunity to remedy their ballots. In Pima County, the Barber campaign offered 15 new signed declarations from voters whose votes have not been counted, in addition to the 132 signed declarations that were made public on Tuesday.
