Vote counting on early ballots in Maricopa County began Tuesday, two weeks before Election Day.
“I think we’re going to be in very good shape,” County Recorder Adrian Fontes said Tuesday on KTAR News 92.3 FM’s The Mike Broomhead Show.
The elections department reported more than 645,000 ballots were ready for processing.
The fall general is Nov. 3, but early voting started Oct. 7 in Arizona.
“Turnout is amazing. Voters are really coming in early, which is going to make it a lot easier for us to have a much larger portion of the total results reported on Tuesday night,” Fontes said.
