(Phoenix, AZ) -- Election officials in all Arizona counties can continue counting ballots as they try to verify signatures. A settlement has been reached in the lawsuit over the signature validation process of some mail in ballots from Tuesday's election. It will allow all county recorders to reach out to voters whose signatures on ballots don't match up with signatures on record. Currently, Maricopa and Pima counties are the only ones doing that after election day. The settlement will allow the process known as "curing" to continue until 5 p.m on November 14th . The settlement comes after the Republican party in four Arizona counties sued over the practice, saying it was unconstitutional to allow some counties to continue curing the ballots, while others had stopped on election day.
