On Wednesday, the Arizona State Supreme Court agreed with Lake’s claim that lower courts erred in dismissing her lawsuit to the 2022 midterm election’s signature verification procedure.
The Arizona gubernatorial candidate announced the development on Wednesday.
Lake posted on Twitter: “HUGE: AZ Supreme Court Rules In Favor of Kari Lake, Forces Lower Court to Look at Signature Verification Issues.”

The justices agreed with Lake’s argument on the signature verification procedure, but they rejected Lake’s other six of seven claims of vote irregularities.
The court will rule on Lake’s contention that Maricopa County disregarded Arizona law regarding ballot tally, Chief Justice Robert Brutinel wrote in the decision.
It is required to demonstrate that there were enough swayed votes to change the election’s result, and not just make an unsupported declaration of uncertainty. This demonstration must be supported by a solid mathematical foundation.
Lake is 17,000 votes behind Katie Hobbs, a former secretary of state. After being sworn in in January, Hobbs has been serving as governor.
Lake used Twitter to assert that her claims regarding the election were supported by a court’s ruling. She added that her detractors wanted her to be charged with a crime for challenging the results of the midterm elections.

In addition to being mentioned as a potential running mate for Trump’s 2024 presidential campaign, Lake is also being considered for the Senate election in Arizona in 2024 against independent Senator Kyrsten Sinema.
Tuesday, Lake made the case that more people need to become aware of what is going on.
