Find your polling place and don't forget your 'cheat sheet'

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Polling places like Temple Emanuel, on Country Club near Broadway, are opening their doors at 6 a.m.

This will be the first Election Day since the redistricting, so voters may be voting somewhere different then they did four years ago.  So voters need to double check their polling place.

Voters can fill out a sample ballot at home and bring it with them into the voting booth, sort of a cheat sheet for voting. 

Election workers say there probably will not be long lines to contend with at many polling places, as two-thirds of voters, voted early.  Of the 468,000 registered voters in Pima County, two-thirds of them voted early.

According to election officials with the county this is a total reverse from voting numbers just ten years ago.  This translates into shorter lines, and more manageable polling places.  Good for the workers and good for the voters.

Polls are open now and close at 7 p.m. tonight.  There are over 270 polling locations across the county.

Reminder for voters, the most important thing election officials want you to know is if anyone still has an early ballot, do not mail it, just bring it in to the polling place and hand it in.
