Tomorrow is Election Day in Arizona

Polls will be open from 6 a.m.-7 p.m. tomorrow as Arizonans cast ballots for a number of races in the primary election.

Independents can vote in the election by requesting a ballot from one of the other registered parties.

If you have an early ballot you didn't return, you can drop it off tomorrow at any polling place. It's too late to mail it in enough time to be counted.
