Have You Received Your Early Ballot?  

Voters on the Permanent Early Voting List (PEVL) not affiliated with one of the four recognized parties (Democratic, Republican, Libertarian and Americans Elect) will not automatically receive an early ballot.  Voters on PEVL not affiliated with a recognized party must first designate a ballot preference with the Maricopa County Elections Department.  Ballot preference requests can be made: 

  • By returning the “90 Day Notice” card, 
  • By phone at 602-506-1511, or 
  • In writing (including name, address, date of birth, party ballot selection, and signature) to the Maricopa County Elections, Attn: Early Voting, 510 S. Third Avenue, Phoenix, AZ 85003.   

The deadline to designate a party or city-only ballot preference and still receive an early ballot by mail is 5:00 p.m. on Friday, August 15, 2014. 

Voters that do not make a ballot designation by the deadline, will be required to vote at an Early Voting Location or at their polling location where they will be required to designate a ballot preference. 

This process does not apply to the General Election.
