Valley voters will have nearly double the polling locations to choose from in May, following major election issues during our state's presidential primary.

The Board of Supervisors on Thursday approved a list of 56 additional polling locations submitted earlier this month by Helen Purcell's office.

March's polling locations for the presidential primary totaled 60, meaning May will see nearly twice as many, with 116 locations. All of the March locations will also be open for May's voters.

Every point on the map below is an upcoming polling location. Blue points indicate the location was also used in March. For a full-screen view, click here.

Confusion and long lines marked the 2016 presidential preference election, with voters waiting hours to cast their vote.

The U.S. Justice Department is inquiring about the problems to evaluate if our state complied with voting rights laws.
