Meanwhile, Voters in Tucson will elect a new mayor and some city council members today. There are also some school bond issues on the ballot in Pima county.

Voters in Tucson are deciding the fate of a ballot measure that would make Tucson Arizona’s only “Sanctuary City.” Supporters of “Proposition 205” say a victory would send the message to immigrants that they're valued and protected.

It comes amid fierce anger over President Donald Trump's immigration policies. The measure aims to put new restrictions on when police can inquire about immigration status or cooperate with federal law enforcement.

The Democratic Tucson City Council strongly opposes the sanctuary initiative.

Mayor Jonathan Rothschild says the city already has strong protections for immigrants. He worries it would endanger state and federal funding.

Both supporters and opponents agree the measure is likely to end up in court if it's approved.

Polls open at 6 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.
