Pinal County officials in Arizona are under serious heat after Tuesday’s primary election. County officials apologized to residents of Pinal County on Wednesday for not having enough in-person ballots. Over 20 precincts in the County ran low or were completely out of ballots prior to the polls closing.

No official cause as to why there was a shortage has been given, however, Pinal County officials believes high demand and printing errors may have been possible factors.

During a press conference on Wednesday, the Pinal County Board of Supervisors addressed issues regarding the lack of in-person ballots. County official Jefferey McClure spoke on the topic.

“I’m not entirely sure how the ballot shortage happened,” he said. “We opened the boxes and there weren’t enough ballots, so we’re not really quite clear how that occurred.”

Election officials have speculated they will not be able to certify the election due to the possibility that people were not able to vote. This announcement comes after 60,000 mis-printed ballots were sent throughout the county in July.
