Description

This story presents an analysis of the percentage of provisional ballots cast in precincts across Maricopa County, Arizona during the November 2012 general election. Maricopa County is home to Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and home to several Hispanic rights groups. After the general election in November, some of the groups claimed Hispanics and other minorities were forced to vote provisionally more often than other groups, increasing the likelihood that their votes wouldn't count. This story confirmed that areas with higher rates of minorities did see higher rates of provisional ballots cast.
