Tonya MacBeth showed up at her local early-voting site Thursday morning, eager to cast her ballot. But an hour and 40 minutes later, she left concerned that the lines could, once again, deter voters.

“I think they’re just completely overwhelmed,” MacBeth said of city workers staffing the site at Cave Creek Town Hall.

Indeed they are. Town Manager Peter Jankowski is one of those workers. They have seen waits of two to three hours this week, as people from outside the small north Valley enclave drive in to cast a ballot in advance of Nov. 8.

Thirty people left Wednesday without voting, discouraged by the long wait or pulled away by other appointments, he said.
