A state representative called Wednesday for Maricopa County Recorder Helen Purcell to resign after reports that some voters waited as long as 5 hours to vote in Tuesday's presidential primaries.

State Rep. Jonathan Larkin, D-Glendale, called the lines "unacceptable," echoing Gov. Doug Ducey's comments.

"I believe poor planning led to what we saw during the presidential preference election on Tuesday," Larkin said in a release.

“County Recorder Purcell has been in office since 1988; it’s time for a change of leadership. Enough is enough," Larkin said.
