Former Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake provided lackluster evidence on the opening day of her trial regarding her repeated claims of election fraud. Lake, a Republican, lost by more than 17,000 votes to her Democratic opponent Katie Hobbs in November.

Lake had promised several bombshell revelations leading up to the court date. On the first day of trial, her lawyers offered nominal one-offs and personal anecdotes that could not prove the widespread, intentional misconduct she claimed.

Lawyers for the former television anchor focused on ballot issues at polling locations in Arizona's Maricopa County, which holds more than 60% of the state's voters. There were reports of printers creating ballots too light to be read by the on-site tabulators at polling places, leading to backed-up lines in some areas and causing confusion.

Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson granted Lake a two-day trial to make the case for her election fraud claims. The trial will end Thursday.

Thompson's ruling to enter trial requires Lake to establish that Maricopa County's printer malfunctions were purposefully malicious to prevent her from taking office. The ruling also mandates that Lake proves the malfunctions impacted the result of the election.

While the printer issue undoubtedly caused delays for voters, county officials say everyone was ultimately able to vote.

Lake also claimed that the chain of custody for ballots was broken at one off-site facility and that workers at the facility inserted their ballots there rather than going to a polling place, according to the Associated Press.

Lake's attorneys spent four and a half hours presenting their case on Wednesday, according to the Arizona Republic. They now have one more hour on Thursday to prove to Thompson that their claims have the merit to move forward in court.

Hobbs will be sworn in as Arizona governor on Jan. 2.
