Arizona voters have a chance to do something Tuesday that they have not done in decades — produce a close result in a presidential race.

The contest between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton could go down to the wire after Democrats spent heavily in Arizona and mobilized an aggressive get-out-the-vote effort in the traditionally red state.

Voters are deciding whether to legalize recreational marijuana in Arizona and make it a rare U.S.-Mexico border state to allow adults to use the drug still banned under federal law.

Also on the ballot Tuesday is an initiative that would raise the minimum wage to $12 an hour by 2020 and require some employers to provide paid sick time off.

The pot measure would allow those 21 and older to possess up to an ounce of marijuana in the conservative state. Arizona is one of five states considering recreational pot this election.

Arizona voters head to the polls Tue, Nov. 8 for the 2016 U.S. general election. The primary focus this election, of course, is the presidential race between Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton. Libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Party Candidate Jill Stein also appear on the ballot.
