Protecting your vote in Arizona during the election

Arizona officials are taking action but also urge voters be part of the solution.

A record-breaking number of people have registered for the 2020 election, but how do you know your ballot will be safe?

Tony Paniagua reports on what officials with the Pima County Recorder's Office and the FBI say they are doing to protect voters, including verifying suspicious signatures on mail ballots and investigating allegations of intimidation.

They also recommend residents seek out accurate information from reliable sources and not rely on social media postings or other questionable sources.

If you plan to vote by mail, experts say you should ensure you return your ballot one week before election day and follow up to ensure it has been received.
