Approximately 208,000 Phoenix voters who are on the permanent early voting list (PEVL) will begin to receive early ballots beginning Thursday, Aug. 1. If residents are not on the PEVL and wish to receive an early ballot by mail, request forms are available online at phoenix.gov/elections and at city public service counters and libraries. A signed, written request must be received by Friday, Aug. 16.
Voted early ballots must be received by the City Clerk no later than 7 p.m. on Election Day.
Voters are advised to allow sufficient time for mail delivery by Election Day. Voted early ballots also may be delivered to early voting or voting center locations during voting hours.
In addition, voters are reminded to take the time needed to consider and mark their ballot, but voters who complete their ballots early are encouraged to return the ballot as soon as it is voted. Returning voted ballots as early as possible provides more time for signature verification and processing so that final results are available sooner.
Accessible voting devices that permit voters with disabilities to vote independently will be available at the early voting sites and voting center locations.
