Concerns about COVID-19 suppressing votes seem unwarranted. Arizona voters have already turned in more early ballots than they did in 2018 and 2016. As of Thursday, 909,906 ballots were returned to the Secretary of State’s office. Democrats returned 44.9%, Republicans returned 44%, and Independents returned 11.1% according to Data Orbital’s early vote tracker.
It will be interesting to see the final numbers once all votes are in, but don’t get complacent. Every vote counts, and solid, pro-life, pro-family candidates need every vote they can get.
