What you need to know before heading to the polls

YUMA, Ariz. – Thousands of Arizona residents are expected to vote for the presidential preference election on Tuesday.

For those going to vote, be sure to bring a form of identification with you. Only certain parties are allowed to cast their ballots.

Mary Martinez with the Yuma County elections office says, “Any voter in Yuma County registered as a Republican, Democrat or Green Party.”

Meaning those who are registered as Independent will not be allowed to vote on Tuesday, but can still vote in the general election in November. There are seven locations across Yuma County where residents can vote. Four locations are in Yuma, the other three are in Somerton, San Luis and Welton:

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Neighborhood Center- 300 S. 13th Avenue, Yuma.

Yuma Civic Center- 1440 W. Desert Hills Drive, Yuma.

San Luis City Hall- 1090 E. Union Street, San Luis.

First Southern Baptist Church of Welton- 11711 Williams Street, Welton.

Polls open at 6 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.

Martinez says it should not take that long to cast your ballot, but to expect long lines before getting into the polls. The busiest times to vote are from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
