READ: Ultra-Tight McSally/Barber Election Recount NOT Necessarily Delayed By Voters' Complaint To Adjust Computer Program/Process; December 17 Is Targeted Decision Date

UPDATED, 4:50pm: In an afternoon telephonic hearing, the Arizona Supreme Court informed attorneys for voters, the Barber and McSally campaigns, and the government that it would not consider the Special Action filed Monday afternoon by Pima and Cochise County voters.  The Special Action crossed paths with the judicial proceeding opened yesterday in Maricopa County Superior Court (details below), and it is likely that the issues raised in the Special Action will be raised there.

The ultra-tight election contest between GOP candidate Martha McSally and Rep. Ron Barber (D-CD2) will NOT necessarily be delayed by a new lawsuit filed by CD2 voters to change the programs to recount the ballots.

Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Katherine Cooper has set a Court hearing for December 17 (10am) on the results of the recount. (See, Order, published below)
