The all-mail balloting that Maricopa County used in its November elections was an “overwhelming success,” according to a recent report from recorder Adrian Fontes.

The report, which analyzed the results from last year’s jurisdictional elections, found that changing all the ballots to mail-in did not affect turnout.

“The elections department views that as a success: Voters were offered a new method of voting, and they used it,” the report read.

More than 1 million ballots were mailed to voters and more than 245,000 were returned, according to the report.
