Arizonans accuse polling station workers of obstructing voting
Pima County local officials say voter accusations are false. Many Trump supporters have previously stated that polling stations in Arizona use of sharpie pens in GOP precincts is causing ballots to be invalidated.
This theory was supported by the chairman of the American Conservative Union Matt Schlapp. Twitter instantly marked the tweet as “misleading”.
AZ update: apparently the use of sharpie pens in gop precincts is causing ballots to be invalidated. Could be huge numbers of mostly Trump supporters. More to come— Matt Schlapp (@mschlapp) November 4, 2020
In defense, Pima County posted a series of tweets explaining that “Arizona ballot tabulating machines can read ballots marked with a felt tip pen”.
If it does bleed through, the ballot will most likely get sent for duplication so it can be read by the scanner.

This scandal takes place against the backdrop of the rapid loss of Donald Trump in the presidential election. The presidential administration is already preparing a number of lawsuits and claims for Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Arizona demanding a stop counting ballots and recounts due to numerous violations.
