Demonstrators moved on the Maricopa County Recorder's office one day after national elections and demanded that county and state officals divuldge how many ballots have not been counted.

Demonstrators cite tales of vogters in minority areas of the state being forced to file "provisional" ballots and being told they were not registered and therefore not able to vote. Provisional ballots are not pure ballots but rather ballots to be examined at a later date.
State and Federal races were called early Tuesday night, largely in favor of Republican candidates.
While there has been no confirmation other than they "have ballots that haven't been counted" State officals have left the public wondering how many there are.
There is, at this time, no evidence for the claim, but the number of uncounted ballots being quoted by angry members of the public is 400,000. They claim that if this is the case, elections could be overturned.
The election saw Richard Carmona lose to Jeff Flake and controversial sheriff Joe Arpaio re-elected.
