Anthony Kintz is a Queen Creek, Arizona native. His “recount or revote” petition on Change.org has accumulated more than 2.5 million signatures. Although it’s still short of the more than 4 million signatures gathered by a similar petition for Hillary Clinton in 2016, the petition has taken off. Kintz created the petition after the election.
His bio on Change.org reads: “I am a God fearing redneck American. I was raised up 23 years in Iowa. Now residing in Arizona. I keep my head down and stick to my own. But as with any redneck we have a limit. I may be a self declared redneck but I am no idiot. I firmly belive in MAGA.”
His age is unclear.
Anthony Kintz Recount Petition
Kintz, who lives in Queen Creek, told Lynchburg Reporter that he made the petition when he felt that “something wasn’t right.” He said his goal is for a recount or a revote. Kintz, who is married and has two children, said that he supports President Donald Trump, but will support “fair and accurate” results that show President-Elect Joe Biden won.
He titled his petition: “Recount or revote the entire 2020 presidential election.”

He wrote on his petition that he wants the entire election recounted or “re voted” with “better overwatch.” He added: “We also ask that no media outlet be able to report the votes cast for one candidate or the other until such time that 100% of the vote has been received and counted and verified. We ask this be mandated to all electoral races local, state and federal.”
Kintz told Lynchburg Reporter: “The understanding is that 100,000 signatures are needed within 30 days for a review by the Supreme Court and we got 100,000 signatures in the first 48 hours.”
Change.org petitions don’t guarantee any particular action will result from the petition. The idea behind them is that by showing the number of people supporting a cause, that might lead to change. For example, Sallie Mae changed its forbearance fee policy after a petition in 2012.
The Supreme Court only reviews decisions of lower courts (via appellate jurisdiction) when parties petition the U.S. Supreme Court if they’re not satisfied with a lower court’s decision, U.S. Courts reported. The primary means of petitioning the court is by seeking a writ of certiorari. The Supreme Court also has original jurisdiction over a small category of cases (meaning it can hear a case without it being heard in a lower court first.) This only applies to disputes between states or among high-ranking officials like ambassadors.
