Many polling place lines, like this one at the Arizona Historical Society Museum at Papago Park, wrapped on for hours on March 22, 2016.

The long lines to cast votes in the Valley hours after polling places were closed has led to calls for the system to change.

Chuck Coughlin, president of public affairs firm High Ground, spoke about the long lines and Independent voters. Antonio Gonzalez of the Southwest Voter Registration Education Project discussed the potential impact of Latino voters.
