Maricopa County elections officials satisfied concerns from Democrats that there will be enough polling locations for the Nov. 8 election, leading to a settlement on one part of a federal lawsuit stemming from March’s presidential preference election.
The settlement was filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Phoenix.
Arizona minority voters, along with state and national Democratic Party officials and the campaigns of Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, sued in April. It came weeks after long lines for the March 22 presidential preference election frustrated voters and prompted many to abandon the long waits and not vote.
