Steady flow at emergency polling site

TUCSON - Plenty of people took the opportunity to vote Monday. There's been a steady flow of people coming to cast their ballot at the Pima County Recorder's Office, the only emergency voting site in Pima County.

With sample ballot in hand, voters arrived at the site. "This was an opportunity for me to come down here and get this taken care of. It's really important to vote," said Roman.

Roman said this was the only day he could cast his ballot. "I work two jobs really busy so I don't have a lot of time to get this done," said Roman. He has a full schedule to support his family. "Four wife. Real busy, so this is awesome that they have this available for me," he said.

State law allows emergency voting for those who didn't make early voting and won't be able to vote on Election Day.

"I'm going to be busy tomorrow and I thought I'd get it done right now, while I'm off today," said Manny Fung.

Emergency voting is available Mondays before Election Day at the Recorder's office. It's also the place where many people dropped off their mail-in ballots.

"It's important," said Ilene Lupke. Lupke said she prefers to vote at home through a mail-in ballot. "I like to check out the propositions because they all cost me money as a property owner," said Lupke.

The site closed at 5 p.m., but of course, voters still have Tuesday to cast a ballot at their polling locations, or if you have a mail-in ballot, you can drop it off at any polling location in Pima County.
