Arizona Primary Election Day – What You Need To Know

By on August 2, 2022 0 38Views

Today is Arizona’s primary election.

Voters in Maricopa County can vote at any voting site. The state’s largest county will have 210 polling locations open. All voting centers across the state will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug 2.

For voters who have not yet mailed their early ballot, election officials would like to remind them that is now too late to mail your ballots. However, voters can take their vote by mail ballots to any voting center location to drop off their early ballot. If your green envelope is sealed and signed, voters are asked to skip the line and drop off your ballot in the secure drop box that will be located at each voting location. A government ID is not necessary to drop off a completed early ballot.

All early ballots that are dropped off on Tuesday will be verified and counted over the next week until all ballots are counted. Election officials have reported that more than 600,000 voters have already participated in the election.

The Elections Department will begin posting unofficial results starting at 8 p.m. Voters can see results here.
