The Arizona Supreme Court is set to make a decision on a state law that would determine how Tucson conducts its city-wide elections.

The court is expected to issue a ruling Friday on a statute requiring municipal races be held without identifying candidates’ partisan affiliations.

The Court of Appeals overturned the 2009 state law, saying the city charter overrides the state law under the Arizona Constitution.

When the law first went into effect, the city challenged its constitutionality.
