On Tuesday, Nov. 5, the city of Phoenix will conduct its regularly scheduled Runoff Election for City Council members in Council Districts 4 and 8. There is no city election in the other City Council Districts.

For faster service, voters are encouraged to bring their driver’s license, state-issued identification card or voter identification card. During this period, the City Clerk Department will operate a voter information telephone line to assist voters with information about the election or voting center locations.

The voting centers’ addresses also are listed in the Sample Ballot Pamphlet that was mailed in late September to all residences in Council Districts 4 and 8 where there is a registered voter who did not request to obtain the pamphlet electronically. Additionally, voters can visit phoenix.gov/elections to see a list of voting center locations along with a map of the locations. Also available online is an interactive application that will show voters the voting center closest to them along with the amount of voter activity at each site.
Every voter is required to show proof of identity at the voting center to receive a ballot. One form of the following types of photo ID with name and address will be accepted:
- Valid Arizona driver license
- Valid Arizona non-operating identification license
- Tribal enrollment card or other from of tribal identification
- Valid United States federal, state or local government issued identification
Two forms of non-photo ID with name and address also will be accepted. The identification must match the voter’s name and address shown on the voter registration roll. A list of the acceptable forms of identification is available at phoenix.gov/elections or in the Sample Ballot Pamphlet.
Voters who do not present acceptable identification may vote a provisional ballot at the polls, but may be required to present acceptable identification to an election official by 5 p.m. on the Friday after the election.
Voters who received an early ballot by mail, but have not yet voted and returned the ballot, can still vote the ballot they received in the mail. Voters must place the voted ballot in the signed affidavit envelope. The envelope can then be dropped off at any voting center in the city, including Phoenix City Hall, 200 W. Washington St. or at any county polling place. Early ballots must be received by 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 5.
As a reminder, Maricopa County also will be conducting special elections for school districts within the city of Phoenix on Tuesday, Nov. 5 (Election Day). There are separate ballots for the two elections. Voters may vote by mail or at the polls for either election.
The school district election conducted by Maricopa County will be a traditional polling place election, which requires voters who vote at the polls to go to their designated polling place. The polling places will be open on Tuesday, Nov. 5 (Election Day).
Most polling places for the County’s school district election on Tuesday, Nov. 5, (Election Day) will be different than the city’s voting centers. City of Phoenix voters who intend to vote at the polls are encouraged to visit any of the 11 voting centers on Saturday, Nov. 2, or Monday, Nov. 4, to vote in the city’s runoff election.
