PHOENIX - The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has launched a review of the authority for the county Recorder's Office to run elections in the Phoenix area.
KTVK-TV reports Steve Chucri, the Republican chairman of the board, says he is willing to work with the state Legislature next year on a measure to possibly give the board more control over the election process.    Chucri says he was concerned about the use of emergency voting centers, long voting lines and slow ballot counting during the midterm elections.    Recorder Adrian Fontes says in a statement that his office is preparing for the Nov. 26 official canvass, and his "priority is the work at hand needed to finish out the election."    The Maricopa County board delegated most election duties to the Recorder's Office decades ago.
