Question: Should I put a first-class stamp on the yellow envelope to mail back my ballot?

Answer: No, do not use a stamp. A stamp will slow the mail sorting process and delay your ballot.

Question: Do I need to sign my ballot?

Answer: You must sign the white ballot affidavit envelope in order for your ballot to be processed. Ballots must be returned by 7:00 PM on Election Day.

Question: The Recorder’s Office starts mailing ballots to voters on Wednesday, October 7, 2020. What if I don’t receive my ballot in the mail?

Answer: If you don’t receive your ballot by Thursday, October 15, call our office at 520-724-4330. All household members may not receive their ballot on the same day.

Question: I want to vote at the polls, where is my polling location?

Answer: If you vote at the polls, you must vote at the polling place associated with your residential address. Find your polling location here or call our office at 520-724-4330.

Question: I received my ballot in the mail, but I want to vote in person at a polling place. Is that OK?

Answer: If you receive a vote by mail ballot you should vote it. Deciding to go to the polling location and voting a provisional ballot slows the process down. A good option is to vote your ballot you received in the mail, and drop it off at any polling location. If you feel the need to vote in person, you can vote at any Early Voting Site without having to vote a provisional ballot.

Question: Who can drop off someone else’s ballot?

Answer: Family member, household member, or caregiver.

Question: Do I have to vote for every office and initiative for my ballot to count?

Answer: No. It is fine to vote for only offices and initiatives where you feel knowledgeable. Your ballot will count.

If you have questions about your voter registration or the upcoming elections, please call us at 520-724-4330.
