YUMA, Ariz (KYMA, KECY) - The Arizona Presidential Preference Primary is still underway in Yuma County.

Yuma County said their facilities are equipped to promote social distancing and proper cleaning and disinfecting will take place while the centers are open.

“Most people were wearing gloves and there was sanitizer. It wasn’t really much of a concern," explained Michael, a voter.

Voters also continued to file into voting centers despite Coronavirus concerns.

”As far as turnout, it does look like people are coming in a little bit at a time as opposed to a whole group,” explained Pete, a voter.

About 25 percent of registered Democrats in Yuma County turned out to vote, according to the Yuma County Recorder's Office.

If you still have your hands on an early ballot, you can drop them off at any voting center, the ballot box, or at the Yuma County Recorders Office, according to Yuma County officials.
