The office of the Pima County recorder, which oversees elections in the Tucson area, received warning of a suspicious package in an adjacent garage, and workers answering calls from polling places had to put everything on hold for nearly an hour. By the time workers returned to the phones, they had to bring in additional staff to help with the call load.
According to Tucson News Now, that wasnt the only location that received a bomb threat on primary day:
Four locations in Tucson received bomb threats on Tuesday, so the building was evacuated as a precaution. At the time of the evacuation, the Pima County Recorders Office had been staffing a voter help line to answer questions about voter eligibility, polling locations and other voting-related issues.
