PHOENIX — Hundreds of thousands of voters hit the polls on Tuesday to vote in Arizona’s midterm election and elect a new U.S. senator, U.S. representatives, state representatives and more.

The biggest race of the night was arguably be the race for senator, when Republican Martha McSally and Democrat Kyrsten Sinema will go head-to-head in an attempt to be the first woman senator elected in Arizona.

More than 259,000 people in Maricopa County alone voted on Tuesday.

Elections officials also worked to ensure that a repeat of the problems in the Aug. 28 primary did not occur — with some success. Sixty-two polling locations in Maricopa County did not open on time for the primary election because of malfunctioning equipment.

But the majority of polling places in Arizona opened on time on Tuesday: Of 503 polling sites, only five experienced glitches.

The Golf Academy of America in Chandler was unavailable after being foreclosed on overnight and technical issues at Mesa Sunland near Greenfield Road and Southern Avenue were sending voters to Mesa Community College’s Red Mountain Campus.

Voting system computers were also down throughout Maricopa County for about five minutes on Tuesday afternoon. The cause of the problem was being investigated.

Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes said he has hired about 4,000 county workers to set up machines and work at the precincts on Election Day in an attempt to avoid any errors.

Polling locations opened at 6 a.m. on Tuesday and closed at 7 p.m., but as long as voters are in line by then they will be able to vote.

Results are expected to come in as early as 8 p.m., but depending on wait times and how close the races are, it could be later than that.

Here are the latest results in all of the races in the midterm election:
