On Wednesday, the Coconino County Elections Office mailed 30,044 early ballots to registered voters on the Permanent Early Voting List for the upcoming August 30th Primary Election.

Registered voters may request an early ballot by calling the Elections Office, sending a written request to Coconino County Elections Office, or submitting an on-line request at www.coconino.az.gov/elections and clicking on “Early Ballot Request.”

The deadline to request an early ballot by mail is August 19th.

Early Voting is also available at Page City Hall from Monday – Thursday.

The August 30th Primary Election is an open partisan primary, meaning an early voter who is registered with a recognized political party will be mailed a ballot for the political party indicated on their voter registration form. The recognized political parties for the 2016 elections are Democrat, Republican, Libertarian and Green Party. If a voter is registered with no party affiliation or with an unrecognized political party (Non-Partisan, Independent, Other or other preference), the voter must select a Republican, Democratic or Green Party ballot when requesting an early ballot or voting at the polls.

The Libertarian Party has a closed primary, which means only voters registered as Libertarian on or before the voter registration deadline may vote the Libertarian ballot. Independent and unaffiliated voters may not request a Libertarian ballot.

Voters on the PEVL and who are registered with no party affiliation, or an unrecognized political party, were sent a notice informing them that they must indicate which political party ballot they prefer. If this notice was not returned, the Elections Office will not mail the voter an early ballot. Voters who are on the PEVL and did NOT return their notice may call the Elections Office to request a specific party ballot or do so online at www.coconino.az.gov/elections.

For more information, call the Elections Office at 928-679-7860 or toll-free at 800-793-6181.
