I’M AN INDEPENDENT VOTER. WHY DO I HAVE TO PICK A BALLOT?
Arizona has an open primary election. This means that as a voter registered without a party preference, you will need to select a ballot for Maricopa County’s August 2 Primary Election. You may choose a Republican, Democratic or a City/Town Only (when available) ballot. If you vote by mail, make your choice at BeBallotReady.Vote. If you vote in-person, you make your request when you check-in at the voting location. This is a one-time request and does not change your party preference.
WHAT ACCESSIBILITY OPTIONS DO I HAVE TO CAST MY BALLOT?
Maricopa County voters may request braille or large print ballots by calling (602) 506-1511. Voters who need assistance due to a confining illness or disability may request a Special Election Board. Call (602) 506-1511 or email SEB@risc.maricopa.gov for more information and include your Full Name, Residence Address, Contact Information and Date of Birth for verification purposes. Accessible voting devices are available at all voting locations, as well as curbside voting for voters who are unable to leave their vehicle due to physical limitations.
WHERE CAN I VOTE IN PERSON OR DROP OFF MY BALLOT?

HOW CAN I SIGN UP TO GET A BALLOT IN THE MAIL?
Maricopa County voters can request a one-time ballot to be sent by mail to your residence or mailing address on file, or to a temporary mailing address for the August 2 Primary Election and November 8 General Election.

I AM AWAY FROM MY RESIDENCE. WILL MY BALLOT BE FORWARDED?
