Polls open today, few students care

Editor's Note: This article is part of the Wildcat's continuous coverage of the 2002 Arizona election.

Polling places open this morning for the primary elections but don't expect to see them filled with college students.

College-age voter turnout in Arizona elections has hovered around 8 percent for the past several years, said Peter Goudinoff, a political science lecturer and former Arizona state senator. That makes voters between the ages of 18-years and 25-years old the least likely group to vote.

In contrast, voters over the age of 60 are the most likely to vote, with a 70 percent turnout rate at the polls, said Chris Roads, registrar of voters for Pima County.

Pima County sees an average 60 percent turnout for the general election, which means about 200,000 of the 350,000 registered voters in the county are filling in the bubble on the ballot for their favorite candidates, he said.

Where to Vote

To find your polling place call the Pima County Recorder's office at 740-4330 or visit its Web site at http://www.recorder.co.pima.az.us and click on "polling place information." Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
