Kari Lake filed a public records lawsuit against Maricopa County, Ariz., over the election, per AP.
Lake, who ran for governor, has flagged several voting issues as ones that disenfranchised voters.
Maricopa, the most populous county in the state, is set to certify its election results on Monday.
Kari Lake, the Republican MAGA acolyte who was defeated in her bid to become Arizona governor earlier this month, has filed a public records lawsuit against Maricopa County, demanding that they turn over varying documents regarding purported printer malfunctions on Election Day.
Lake's attorney filed the lawsuit on Wednesday, stating that the county had not yet disclosed documents that were requested on November 15 and November 16, according to The Associated Press.
The requests sought to find Maricopa voters who may have had difficulties casting a ballot at their precinct, including individuals who have submitted a mail-in ballot while also checking in at a polling location.
Lake is also seeking additional information about counted and uncounted ballots that may have been inadvertently mixed during the election counting process. Per The Associated Press, Maricopa officials said that there were several such occurrences this month, but the county affirmed that it happens in many elections and can be resolved.
Maricopa, the most populous county in Arizona, contains roughly 60 percent of the state's population, and in 2020 and 2021 became an epicenter of former President Donald Trump's debunked claims of voter fraud regarding his narrow statewide loss to now-President Joe Biden.
Lake, a former television journalist, was edged out by Arizona Democratic Secretary of State Katie Hobbs in the general election 50.3%-49.7%. With nearly 2.6 million ballots cast statewide, Hobbs beat Lake by a little over 17,000 votes.
But Lake, who has refused to acknowledge Biden's 2020 win in Arizona, has so far declined to concede to Hobbs.
The Republican nominee's public records lawsuit seeks additional information about data pointing to voting mishaps as well as the number of voters who may have been affected by any issues, and the lawsuit asks that the records be disclosed before the county certifies the results on Monday.
"This deadline (or its substantial equivalent) is, under the circumstances presented, necessary to ensure that vital public records are furnished promptly and that apparent deficiencies can be remedied before canvassing of the 2022 general election," Lake's complaint read.
Lake on November 8 sought to extend voting in Maricopa due to several voting-related issues, but a state judge declined to do so, stating that he didn't see any verifiable evidence that any registered Arizonan was blocked from voting that day.
