Arizona State Representative Mark Finchem has introduced HCR 2033, which calls for the elections of Maricopa, Pima and Yuma Counties to be set aside and ultimately decertified based on “clear and convincing evidence that the elections in those counties were irredeemably compromised.”
“The circumstances surrounding these elections undermine voter confidence in the election system, moreover, they ultimately translate into doubts about election integrity,” Finchem said in a statement. Finchem — who is a candidate for Arizona Secretary of State — has been a staunch supporter of election integrity, namely the Maricopa County audit.
The Marciopa audit previously unearthed numerous election irregularities, including the counting of 9,589 excess mail-in ballot envelopes and 5,047 individuals who voted in more than one county. In a database examined by auditors, the number of voters whose existence could not be verified in a far outnumbered Joe Biden’s reported lead of 10,457 votes in the state.
5,295 over votes from people voting in more than one county
282 dead voters
At least one batch of 50 ballots “was run through the tabulators twice.”
Official Canvass recorded 3,432 MORE ballots cast than people they recorded as having cast a vote

“The questions first raised over a year ago about the legitimacy of the 2020 General Election persist. Evidence and testimony collected since November 3, 2020, has reached the point of clear and convincing and is now in the hands of the Arizona Attorney General for action,” Finchem continued in a press release. “We have debunked the ‘baseless claims’ narrative promoted by the propaganda pushing media and are now on to the business of providing specific relief to the people.”
Finchem has called for the 2020 election to be decertified in the state since the Maricopa audit’s findings were made public. President Trump has endorsed Finchem’s candidacy for Secretary of State, saying it was a “great honor” to be able to endorse Finchem, “a patriot who has fought for our Country right from his earliest moments in government,” adding that he was always “willing to say what few others had the courage to say.”
