Early Wednesday morning, an election official in the Arizona Secretary of State's office said more than 1.5 million ballots had been cast in the state's midterm election, nearly reaching the level of the 2014 midterms with still an estimated several hundred thousand ballots yet to come in.
NEW officials have added 12 new polling stations, added more staff, and two printers to help speed up the process. Estimate this will help cut the wait time by 45 minutes at polling center at ASU. Final voter in line says he’s still conflicted about how he will vote @abc15pic.twitter.com/zVvJgAIBdN
The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors will not keep polls open past 7 p.m. after several advocacy groups complained some voters had issues casting ballots.
Board spokesman Fields Moseley said keeping the polls open late would be unprecedented and could confuse voters, delay returns and have unintended consequences.
Students on the Arizona State University campus in Tempe have waited in long lines most of the day, and several advocacy groups called on the supervisors to keep polls open beyond 7 p.m.
Feminist Majority, a group that works with students on voting rights, said the nine voting stations at the campus polling location were not sufficient. The Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under the Law said that technology glitches and printing problems meant some people could not vote.
AZ Secy of State estimates 100 thousand early ballots will be dropped off today. Those ballots won't be processed today. They may not be processed until the end of the week. This means: in close races, we may not have a winner tonight. #ElectionDayAZ
It's #ElectionDay! If you're planning to vote today, make sure you're prepared for possible long lines and long wait times. If you're working late at a polling location tonight, take safety precautions when leaving your shift in the dark. #TipTuesdaypic.twitter.com/7JWlJLh5P8
