Former President Donald Trump urged voters to stay in line Tuesday as election sites nationwide are experiencing several issues.

Arizona’s Maricopa County reported issues with voting machines at approximately 20% of its polling locations. County technicians eventually identified solutions to the tabulation issues at 60 Vote Centers by changing the printer settings.

Trump took to social media to urge voters to remain in line amid the debacle. (RELATED: ‘I Hope It’s Not Malice’: Kari Lake Promises A ‘Come To Jesus’ For Arizona Elections After Voting Machine Malfunctions)

“Don’t leave your line, stay where you are, they say that the machines aren’t working, they’re saying they’re running out of paper in different locations throughout different states, there’s a lot of bad things going on. Stay on line, do not leave,” Trump pleaded.

“I know you don’t wanna be there as long as they’re gonna try to force you, they want to delay you out of voting, and you cannot let them delay you out of voting, so to the people of Arizona in particular because that’s the one that’s come up right now, stay on line, don’t leave. Already a lot of people have left and it’s very, very unfair what’s going on. Maricopa County, don’t leave, stay there.”

The Republican National Committee, in conjunction with several other campaigns and organizations, filed an emergency motion to extend the poll hours in Maricopa County.

“The widespread issues – in an election administered by Democrat Secretary of State Katie Hobbs – are completely unacceptable, especially as Republicans flock to the polls to vote in-person on Election Day,” RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said.
