    recorderRodriguez also reports that her office mailed out 373,194 early ballots to voters in Pima County and 311,592 of those ballots were returned, processed and turned over to the Elections Department for tabulation. That is a return rate of more than 83 percent. 

    The number of registered voters in Pima County also set records. As of the registration cut-off for the Election, there were 543,509 active registered voters in Pima County, an increase of over 57,000 registrations since October 2014.
