I spoke with Maricopa County Elections Officials about an hour ago.
Here is a status of the Early Voter Ballots for Maricopa County as of 9:01am, Tuesday, 10/30/2012:
The 516,668 is 44.7% of the 1,155,000. The breakdown of the 516,668 is Republican 232,369 (466,451), Democrat 156,219 (350,389) and Other 128,080 (348,907).
The numbers in parenthesis represent the total number of early voter ballots for Republicans, Democrats and Others. You do the math.
I know Republicans in every County, and throughout Arizona, are monitoring and chasing every ballot possible. Please keep up the hard work and all your GOTV efforts in your LDs and Counties.
I plan to send out one more update before November 6th.
