Protest has started in the US, at the Maricopa County Election Department, Arizona.

The protesters, who are suspected to be armed, are supporters of United States President, Donald Trump.

According to CNN, the protesters came out to express their frustration over a projection by a cable network that the Democratic Party would win the state’s 11 Electoral College votes.

On the election result so far, while the counting of votes continues, former Vice-President Joe Biden, who is the Democratic candidate, is currently leading the race in Arizona albeit by a small percentage.

The outstanding amount of mail-in ballots yet to be counted is at the moment the topic as Trump’s campaign on election night disputed the calls that they lost the state.

“Who’s checking the mail-in votes?” a protester on Wednesday night could be heard saying over a loudspeaker, according to footage posted to Twitter by NBC News correspondent Gadi Schwartz.
“Democrats,” a woman answers. “Democrats are checking them.”

According to The Associated Press with 86 percent of the state reporting, Trump trailed Biden by just shy of 80,000 votes.

The Washington Post reported that as of late Wednesday night, the state was still tabulating more than 300,000 ballots.

In reaction to the development, Trump had taken to social media on Wednesday claiming victory in the election and accusing the Democratic Party of trying to steal votes.
