Nearly 1 million early voters have returned their ballots to county recorders' offices in Arizona, the Secretary of State's Office reported Friday afternoon.

State officials also announced record voter registration of 3.59 million, up nearly 188,000 since the August primary election.
It was the largest report-to-report increase since the 2008 general election, when the gain was 230,989.
