With its half a million still-uncounted ballots, Arizona is the surprising new Florida of elections this year.
The story starts months ago, when a dedicated group of high school students ran a quite successful drive to register new voters. That group, Adios Arpaio, wants people to vote out the anti-immigrant sheriff of Maricopa County, Joe Arpaio.
Adios Arpaio registered more than 30,000 new voters, and many of them experienced some kind of hitch at the polls. Now Adios Arpaio is in a desperate scramble to reach the 115,000 Maricopa voters who were forced into voting a provisional ballot. Those voters must go back to the county elections office by the Wednesday deadline to prove they voted properly, or else their votes will be thrown out. At least, as you can see above, the folks at Adios Arpaio have kept their sense of humor. More on their very serious story tonight.
