With everything in readiness for the
primary election, the polls In tho 83
f rtclncts of the county will open at
6 o'clock this morning and close at 6
o'clock tonight. All supplies and bal
lot boxes have been sent to each of the
polling places by the board of super
visors, and promptly at the opening
hour, all the election officers In each of
, the precincts will be on hand to receive
the voters of the county.
Most of- the candidates for office pu
.In their "eleventh hour licks" in the
way of campaigning yesterday and all
have their preparations complete for
the fray today.
IMany nominations ind defeats may
depend on the vote of Maricopa county
in the state offices. According to Miss
Edith Jacobs, county recorder, 23,512
people registered for the primaries this
year, while at the general election two
;years ago only 19,244 had registered as
eligible to exercise thir franchise. Of
:the county's total, the majority of
voters are in the city of Phoenix.
". The primary law states that the man
receiving the highest number of votes
on his party ticket' for the office for
which he is a candidate is the success
ful nominee. A majority is not neces-
i sary to secure the nomination, as is
the case in the city elections in
Final Canvass To Be Made Monday
In accordance with the primary law,
the board of supervisors will meet on
the first Monday following the primary
election and will make a canvass of
the votes cast in each precinct. In this
- cae the canvass will be made on Mon
" day. September 13, and will continue
each day until all votes have been
checked. Until the ojard of super
visors complete their canvass, all lists
showing the succtssful county nomina
tions in each party will be only a tem
In cases where the high man in each
office leads the remainder of the field
by a larpe number of votes there will
be but little doubt as to the successful
man. Where the lead though is very
slight, the final outcome of the election
will depend on the canvass made by
the board of supervisors. Should the
high man in any particular county of
fice lead by only a few votes, then the
canvass made by the board may change
the outcome. All state offices also will
depend on the canvass made by each
of the counties for the final outcome
of the race.
Following the closing of each of the
polling places tonight, ine officers will
count the votes cast in that precinct
for the candidates on the tickets and
will then make a tally list of the out
come. The ballots will be placed in
a bag provided for the purpose and
esloi ii r hv the IriKTiector of the rre-
cinct. The box. ballots and all will be
sent then to the board of supervisors'
Som Must Us Bfank Ballots

I M. Laney, county attorney, a few

some party which has no ballot in the

by using the blank ballot. They will
be unable to vote on the other two
ballots. In voting the blank ballot, the
- voter cannot phxce the names of any of
the candidates on the other two parties

s- primary law, only those voters who in

It is estimated by those who nave
been in close touch with the registra-
Ltion work that a number of voters

many who registered early in the sum
mer have gone to the coast or back
east for a visit and will not be in the
