Permanent Early Voting List - Primary Election Ballot Designation Required
The Primary Election is an open partisan primary. This means that if a registered voter on the Permanent Early Voting List (PEVL) is affiliated with a recognized political party, the voter will automatically receive an early ballot for that party. The recognized political parties that have an open primary election are Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, and Americans Elect.
If a registered voter on the PEVL is affiliated with an unrecognized political party (Non-Partisan, Independent, Other or no preference), the voter will not automatically receive an early ballot, and, therefore, must designate which ballot they prefer (Republican, Democratic, Libertarian or Americans Elect). The voter may also choose to receive a city-only ballot which will not include party affiliated candidates.
In order to designate a ballot preference, the voter can return the “90 Day Notice” card to the Maricopa County Elections Department. If the voter no longer has the “90 Day Notice” card, he/she may contact the Maricopa County Elections Department (602-506-1511) to designate which party ballot he/she wishes to receive for early voting in the Primary Election. The voter may also make their party selection online at https://recorder.maricopa.gov/earlyvoteballotnet/evbrequest.aspx.
This process does not apply to the General Election.
House Check While On Vacation From Peoria Police Department
The "Vacation Watch" program is a free service provided to residents of the city of Peoria. The program was designed to have police volunteers check on your home while you are away. Citizens living within the city limits can be placed on the "Vacation Watch" list by completing a form at the Peoria Police Department or by downloading the form and sending it in electronically. Homes will be watched for up to 30 days. Volunteers may walk around your home to see if there is anything unusual or if there is any apparent damage. If any sign of forced entry or unexpected change occurs, a uniformed police officer will be contacted and an investigation will be conducted. The emergency contacts will also be contacted. When on vacation, it is also important to make arrangements with family members, friends or neighbors to also check on your home. It is recommended that mail and newspaper delivery is stopped prior to your departure and that you leave a key with a personal contact or trusted neighbor.
