With the presidential election just days away, around a dozen Tucsonans dressed in Halloween costumes stood on the corner of Campbell Ave. and Speedway on Saturday morning to push people to vote. 

While early voting has ended, voters can vote on Saturday and Monday using "emergency voting" to cast ballots prior to Tuesday. That is available Saturday until 3 p.m., and on Monday, Nov. 2, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

The Recorder's office has 11 locations for emergency voting, including Recorder's main office at 240 N. Stone Ave., the East Side Annex at 6920 E. Broadway, and the ballot processing center at 6550 S. Country Club Rd. 

So far, the Recorder's Office has processed 376,766 ballots, and said that nearly 72 percent of early ballots have been returned by Friday. "We are breaking early voting records daily," said Pima County Recorder. F. Ann Rodriguez.

And, in one day, 4,219 people voted early, Rodriguez said. 

While it's too late to return ballots by mail before Tuesday's deadline, the Recorder's Office said that voters can drop off their ballots at the emergency voting locations. On Tuesday, voters can drop early ballots at any polling location or the Recorder's offices. 

And, Rodriguez again noted that people who received an early ballot can still vote on Tuesday, however, they will given a provisional ballot. "Provisional ballots take up to 10 days after Election Day to be verified and counted," Rodriguez emphasized. "Be part of the solution," she said.

Under Arizona's strict election security process, provisional ballots are reviewed to ensure that people do not cast two ballots, either in person or by turning in an early ballot as well.
