FIND YOUR POLLING PLACE
Don’t assume it’s the same place you typically vote, because polling places do change. You may only vote at your assigned polling place on Election Day.
Check your polling place at www.recorder.pima.gov/VoterStats/PollingInfo or call 724-4330.
Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
BRING ID TO THE POLLS
Your driver’s license is enough if your address is current. Find a list of other acceptable forms of ID at bit.ly/21CsPzo
State law bars photography within 75 feet of polling places. But it is OK to post a photo of your early ballot on social media.
WHAT TO WEAR
You can wear your candidate button or shirt or hat. But state law says you can’t verbally encourage voting for or against a candidate inside the 75-foot limit.
- If you still have an early ballot at home, fill it out and drop it off at a polling place. It’s too late to mail it.
- The ballot is double-sided, so don’t forget to vote both sides. Use a ballpoint pen, not a Sharpie marker or other pen that could bleed through the paper.
- You can’t change your mind about your mail-in ballot. You can drop your ballot off at a polling place. If you were to request another ballot at a polling place, you’d get a provisional ballot and it would slow down the process.
- If you’ve already mailed your ballot, you can check online to see whether your early ballot was processed. Go to www.recorder.pima.gov/VoterStats/ballot_info
- The Pima County Elections Department has been processing and counting mail-in ballots since Nov. 1.
VOTING BY PROVISIONAL BALLOT
Some reasons you might be offered a provisional ballot include:
- Being at the wrong polling place.
- Forgetting to update your address on your voter registration.
- Forgetting to bring ID.
- Or forgetting you already received an early ballot in the mail.
Provisional ballots are processed separately from and later than regular ballots, but could still be counted in the final vote tally and make a difference in close races.
