Complete Primary Election Results

Expected Between 1 and 2am

About 30,000 Early Voting Ballots Ready Shortly After 8pm

County Elections Director Tempert Says About 70% Early Voters

MOHAVE COUNTY, AZ (August 4, 2020) – Mohave County Elections Director Allen Tempert said today that the county polls are “very consistent as it was in the 2016 primary election, but, slightly lighter.”  He says that’s attributed to the state and county “steering citizens to try to use early ballots” and also due to the response to COVID-19.  The end result, because of that increase in the early ballots, is a higher turnout than in 2016.

Tempert says he has a skeleton crew working at the polls because of COVID-19 concerns.  Normally, there would be 400 workers.  Only about 250 workers were utilized in today’s election. As of 4pm, there were no reports of long lines at the 37 polling places.

Over 30,000 early votes have been counted and will be in the first posting at 8pm.  Tempert expects the final election night results between 1 and 2am.  He believes the ratio between early ballots and those voting today is 2-1, perhaps 70% and the trend will definitely continue in that manner in the future.
