The County Board of Supervisors meets Wednesday morning to do the official canvass and formally approve the results. They're also set to discuss the problems at the polls and review how polling sites were selected and consolidated.

Maricopa County cut the number of polling places from previously presidential primaries primarily to save money. But turnout at the polls was greater than expected and they were swamped with voters.

Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump won last week's election in the county and statewide.
