Mohave County voters may be picking the next president of the United States today. Registered Arizona Democrats and Republicans will be casting their votes for their favorite candidate in Arizona's Presidential Preference Election. Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
They will also be joining millions of other voters across the U.S. in Super Tuesday, the day when the largest number of states in the U.S. hold a presidential primary election or caucus. Super Tuesday is the day that candidates can pick up the most delegates for their party's convention. This year, according to the Washington Post, 24 states will be holding presidential primary or preference elections.
In Arizona, only residents registered as a member of either the Democratic or Republican parties will be able to vote. Ballots will not be given to voters registered as Independent, Libertarian or "other party."
Currently there are 24 presidential candidates for each of the two participating parties on the Secretary of State's Web site.
For this election, the Elections Department has consolidated 34 of the county's 73 voting precincts. It also mailed ballots to voters in four precincts.
Voters should also remember to bring a form of identification to the polls. A photo ID such as a driver's license, state ID card, government picture ID or tribal picture ID will work.
If you don't have one of the above forms of photo ID, you must bring two of any of the following forms of ID with your name and address printed on it: a utility bill that is dated within 90 days of the election, a bank or credit union statement, a valid Arizona vehicle registration, an Indian census card, a property tax statement, Recorder's certificate or any "official election material" with your name and address.
Voters without either forms of ID will be able to cast a provisional ballot but will have to bring a form of ID to the Voter Registration Department within a few days after the election in order for their vote to count.
