TUCSON, Ariz. — The Pima County Recorder's Office said the 2018 midterm general election broke many voting records in Pima County.

The number of registered voters in Pima County grew to a record 557,532.

The Recorder's Office said that 70 percent of registered voters voted in the election. That percentage is almost as high as the presidential election in 2016.

“This election year has kept our office extremely busy. The voter registration numbers are great but what’s really exciting is the increased number of registered voters who voted in this election. That means more people actually participated in the election process," said Pima County Recorder, F. Ann Rodriguez.
