PHOENIX — Candidates and political parties are pulling out all the stops as the campaign in Arizona heads into its final 72 hours.

Democrats are organizing what they're calling a huge get out the vote effort, with rallies, precinct walking and phone banks staffed by hundreds of volunteers. Republicans are doing much of the same, plus training hundreds of poll-watchers who will be deployed to observe balloting on Tuesday.

Both parties know turnout could be decisive in some races. Democrats in particular need a strong effort since Republicans are generally more consistent voters.

Both parties are reminding voters who have not yet mailed their early ballots that it's too late to do so now and they'll need to drop them off at a polling place if they want their vote to count.
