Arizona Presidential Preference Election Marked By Coronavirus Concerns

Associated Press

Voters in Arizona cast their ballots in Tuesday’s Democratic primary during a pandemic that has stunted travel, closed schools, forced millions of workers to stay home and canceled campaign rallies.

Many voters expressed concerns that they or their family members will be infected with the new coronavirus.

That’s according to a wide-ranging AP VoteCast survey of the Democratic primary electorate in Arizona.

VoteCast also found voters ranked health care as the most important issue facing the country, well above climate change, the economy, race relations, foreign policy and many other social issues.

The Associated Press declared Joe Biden the winner in Arizona.
