Mail-in ballots

To check the status of an early ballot, check To vote, you must have been registered by midnight on Aug. 1.

The primary will pick party candidates for U.S. Senate and House races, the Legislature and other state races, including the Arizona Corporation Commission. Also in play are Republican nominations for Pima County supervisors. The towns of Oro Valley, Marana, and Sahuarita will hold municipal elections, with the possibility of candidates being elected to office in the primary if they receive a majority of the vote.

Unlike this spring's Arizona presidential preference party, voters who aren't registered with a party holding a primary are eligible to take part. Independent voters can cast a ballot from the party of their choice in the August primary, and are able to request an early ballot from a single party. Non-party voters cannot cast votes in multiple party primaries.
