Emergency voting sites open Monday

While most early voting sites are now closed, three emergency voting locations will be open Monday, where you can drop off a mail-in ballot or cast your vote in person.

Arizona election regulations say that emergency voting is available for any voter in the case of "any unforeseen circumstances that would prevent the elector from voting at the polls."

If you still have a mail-in ballot to return, officials warn that you should not mail it back now; it will be received too late for it to be counted in Tuesday's election. For your ballot to be added to the count, you can hand it in at an emergency voting site, or at any polling place on Election Day.

After voters have mailed or handed in their early ballots, they can track the status of their ballot online.

While early voting helps people take their time deciding and avoid possible long lines on Election Day, it also has contributed to late election results. To forestall allowing voters to cast multiple ballots, those who ask for early ballots and then go to polls instead are issued provisional ballots, which take longer to process. Of the 27,646 provisional ballots issued in 2012 in Pima County, 15,464 were issued to voters who had been sent early ballots.

Here's the list of where you can still vote in person before Tuesday:
