Statement from AG Reyes on Presidential Election and Voting Process in Battleground States
SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 6, 2020--
The following statement from Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes provides an overview on his involvement on the presidential election and the current voting situation in battleground states:
“To clarify a prior tweet, I am not taking a leave of absence from the AG’s Office. I am taking a personal weekend to help review and advise on potential lawsuits related to ensuring all legal votes are counted.
“I certainly do not believe all votes in the 2020 election are fraudulent — many dedicated volunteers and officials across the nation, including in Utah, worked hard to ensure a fair process.
“But, if even some actions in battleground states resulted in improper votes being counted or proper votes being rejected, that compromises the overall fairness of the electoral process and can disenfranchise the votes of millions of Americans.
“Some mistakes were likely made innocently. Others appear very intentional. But, in either case, we should carefully review and remedy any such irregularities. For the sake of our nation and whomever wins this election, let’s make sure it is done fairly everywhere.”
—Sean D. Reyes, Utah Attorney General
