About 89% of Arizona voters cast ballots early, mostly by mail, in the 2020 general election. But now, some Republicans in the state are doggedly attempting to dismantle the system their party helped create. Public domain image.

Officials in Pinal County said Friday that some early ballots for the Aug. 2 primary election may contain errors.
Pinal County officials said Friday that some early ballots sent to a yet unknown number of voters ahead of the Aug. 2 primary election may contain errors.
At least some ballots in Apache Junction, Superior, Maricopa and Casa Grande were sent out this week without city and town contests printed on them, according to Pinal County spokesperson James Daniels. The contests erroneously appeared on ballots sent to voters in nearby unincorporated areas who are not eligible to vote in the municipal races.
“Those are the areas we are aware of at the moment, but I have also heard reports of ballots where they are fine,” Daniels said. “In Florence, for example, we are not hearing of errors. So, it doesn’t necessarily appear it is every single city and town that has been impacted, but that’s what we’re working to get to the bottom of.”
