"Any voter who is shown after 7 in the morning will be rejected." The agency expects more than 100,000 early tickets to fall into today's polls, which will begin processing on Wednesday.

Students at the voting center of Palo Verde West at Arizona State University in Tempe strongly committed to voting on Tuesday despite the long line.

She had left the class before voting and said that she appreciated being able to vote on the campus. "You can not make it easier," said Snyder.

Hobbs was among other Democratic candidates who made a demonstration today at Arizona State University in Tempe. 1: 15 p.m. Interview on election day with Kathy Hoffman, candidate of the Democratic Superintendent

"I am very excited and maybe a little nervous, but in general it is very enthusiastic," said Kathy Hoffman, a Democrat candidate for Arizona Superintendent of Schools. The first candidate, Hoffman said he hopes to win. A recent survey showed a certain contest, but the superintendent's career is probably one of the best opportunities for Arizona democrats to flee from a Republican state office. The dominant Diane Douglas lost in her primary election in August. Hoffman, a 32-year-old speech therapist, said voters are looking for a superintendent who will support a high-quality public education system. And he disapproves of how his Republican opponent, former California congressman, Frank Riggs, addressed himself, especially in the light of Riggs' rigor to choose online fights. "You have to have fair temperament and energy and passion and not be starting to fight with people on Twitter," said Hoffman. "In fact, it's very immature." In the fall of the teacher strike this spring, education is one of the many decisive problems in the Arizona elections. The #RedForEd movement has motivated educators to become involved in the political sphere: people like retired professor Minny Fischer, who on Tuesday was out of the voting station at the Tempe History Museum, encouraging people not to vote on proposal 305. If they were approved On Tuesday, the referendum would expand a controversial coupon program for Arizona students. "I believe in the public school system and I can not believe what happened in this state for politics and lack of funding for public schools," Fischer said. Activists gathered sufficient signatures to put a 2017 law into a referendum after the Legislature expanded a program called Empowerment Scholarship Accounts, which allows students to attend private schools using public dollars. Fischer, who is 70 years old, said that most of the people whom he spoke support the cause. "There is no means of voting, correct what is broken before continuing," Fischer said. "And we have to have transparency."

Jonathan Lines, president of the Republican Party of Arizona, issued a press release that fought the elections of the County of Fontes and Maricopa due to the problems of vote that was seen this morning. "Unfortunately, AZGOP was aware of multiple problems in voting locations throughout the country of Maricopa, which reminds us of the problems we saw on the Day of the elections during the primary season," Lines said in the statement. "The record of the county, Adrian Fontes, turned the blame on these problems to external suppliers and promised that these problems would not persist. Although Democrats would be quick to claim the suppression of voters, I think this is a question of voter integrity." Given that this is the Day of the elections, we must resort to solutions and what the Republican Party of Arizona can offer as a resource. "As mentioned below, Fontes said in a press conference for one hour that the problems of the Election Day were" run-of-the-mill ".
