Yavapai County's preliminary voter turnout jumped to more than 50 percent Thursday when election officials added early mail ballots to the tally.

That is already a new record in a county that consistently has recorded the highest voter turnout at presidential preference elections of all Arizona counties.

And Yavapai elections officials still have to go through about 2,400 provisional ballots from Tuesday's election to see if any of those qualify. They will not finish that work until next week, Yavapai County Recorder Ana Wayman-Trujillo said.

Election officials suspect that many of those provisional ballots came from voters who were not registered with the Republican or Democratic parties. Poll workers reported that numerous non-partisan voters demanded ballots even after workers explained they would not count because only members of the two major parties could vote in this presidential preference primary election.
