PHOENIX (AP) — Voters going to the polls Tuesday for Arizona's primaries will find larger venues to allow for social distancing and poll workers wearing masks as the tradition of casting a ballot adjusts to the coronavirus pandemic.

Most of those who will vote have already done so by mail or at an early voting location.

But in-person voting options are in place around the state.

While Arizona will be in the national spotlight in November as a presidential battleground state and the home of one of the most closely watched Senate contests in the nation, the primaries feature few big-ticket contests.
