Who Messed Up Maricopa County Primary Elections?

Once again there's always more sides to a  story . . . Thanks to both , writing for the Arizona Republic some other details got published yesterday  6:29 p.m. MT Sept. 26, 2018
" . . . When things went awry on election day, resulting in 62 polling places that were not ready for voters at 6 a.m., Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes quickly blamed Insight. He said the company did not supply the required manpower to successfully set up all polling sites. . .
When technicians descended upon Maricopa County on Aug. 27 to set up equipment for the August primary election, they found a plethora of issues.
Locked polling places. Broken check-in machines. Printers with no toner. Out-of-date software. No wireless internet. 
And the list went on from there, according to Tempe-based information technology contractor Insight. . .
But in an Insight report the company released to The Arizona Republic, Insight tells a vastly different story. The company claims the county was tremendously unprepared for election day. 
An attorney for the company called Fontes' allegations defamatory and asked the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors to conduct an administrative review of the recorder's statements about Insight, "which was clearly meant to deflect attention from his office's complete mishandling of the administration of the 2018 primary election. . ."
