Judge orders Cochise County board to canvass election results


The Cochise County Board of Supervisors must meet at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday to examine the results of the Nov. 8 election, a judge ruled that rebuked the board for failing to meet its obligation earlier this week.

Pima County Supreme Court Justice Casey McGinley ordered the board to file the investigation with the Arizona Secretary of State by 5 p.m.

His order came after a hearing that lasted less than half an hour and proceeded without an attorney representing the board.

McGinley rejected Supervisor Tom Crosby’s request that the hearing continue until Tuesday so that the council’s lawyer – who had been hired two hours before the hearing – could “get to work”.

The supervisors found a lawyer and voted 2-1 to hire him, two hours before a scheduled hearing on their decision not to announce the results of the November 8 election.
