Registration deadline near for AZ primaries

PHOENIX (AP) -

The deadline for registering to vote in Arizona's upcoming Republican and Green Party presidential primaries is at the close of business Monday.

The primaries will be held Feb. 28 and will be a Republican-dominated affair because President Barack Obama faces no opposition for the Democratic nomination.

Major GOP candidates Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul made the ballot, as did 24 other people.

Arizonans can register to vote at county recorder offices, the Secretary of State's website or at www.servicearizona.com.
