PHOENIX (AP) - Lawyers representing state and national Democratic groups say they have settled a small part of a lawsuit against Arizona.

They reached a settlement Friday in their joint lawsuit against Maricopa County that will make it easier for residents to vote.

The county miscalculated voter turnout and underestimated the number of vote centers needed to accommodate voters during the March presidential primaries.

As part of the settlement agreement, county officials agreed to consider further recommendations from line experts to better ensure that voters will not again be subject to unacceptably long lines as a result of unsupported allocation decisions.

Still in play are the parts of the suit seeking to overturn Arizona’s ballot collection law and its rules that don’t allow the ballots of people who vote in the wrong precinct.
