Early ballots show surge in turnout

Election Day officially is tomorrow, but more people already have cast their ballots in Arizona than four years ago — though not everywhere throughout the state. New figures from the Secretary of State’s Office on Monday showed that 1,586,783 early ballots had been turned in. By contrast, in the entire 2014 midterm race, only 1,537,671 people voted at all, whether early or at the polls. The biggest turnout for the moment appears to be in Maricopa County where there already are 100,000 more ballots turned in than those who voted at all in 2014.
