John Brakey, co-founder of AUDIT-AZ, filed an election challenge to the Arizona Presidential Preference Election on Friday, according to a press release.

The challenge is on the behalf of Americans for United Democracy, Integrity and Transparency in Elections and disenfranchised voters, according to Brakey, an Arizona voter and election investigator. 

The suit was filed in Maricopa County Superior Court and outlines election procedures and voter suppression. The case is calling for the April 4 certification of the Arizona Presidential Primary to be canceled and no new certification until, “the election is properly conducted and in compliance with Arizona law.”

The defendants of the case include Secretary of State Michele Reagan, the Boards of Supervisors of all 15 Arizona counties and Maricopa County Recorder Helen Purcell. 

The suit includes sworn statements from voters, election experts and a poll expert. 

This case is not related to the investigation into the Arizona election by the U.S. Department of Justice.

The first hearing for the suit is set for April 19.
