Don't bring city mail-in ballot to post office
Still haven't filled out your mail-in ballot for the city primary elections? Don't bring it to the post office; at this point, you'll have to deliver it by hand for it to be counted. The deadline to return ballots to the city clerk is 7 p.m. on Tuesday.
This is the first year of Tucson's "all-mail" voting system. Voters are still able to cast a ballot on Election Day if they choose, at the limited number of polling places made available.
There will be locations to drop off unmailed ballots or for live ballot casting from 6 a.m. until 7 p.m. on Tuesday. Those locations are:
Independents are allowed to vote in the election, but must choose between the Republican, Democratic or Green party candidates.
There aren't many contested races in the local primaries.
In Ward 1, Democratic incumbent Regina Romero is facing local businessman Joe Flores. In the mayoral race, the Green Party’s choices are Mary DeCamp and Dave Croteau.
After two GOP candidates failed to obtain enough valid signatures to get on the ballot, Republicans are hoping to get Rick Grinnell in the general election through write-ins. Grinnell would need 1,060 write in votes to secure a spot on November's ballot. If successful, Grinnell would face off against Democrat and attorney Jonathan Rothschild.
There are other write-in candidates, as well. Daryl Peterson is also seeking to become the Republican nominee through the write-in process, while David Karr and Joseph Maher face long odds against Rothschild to become the Democratic mayoral nominee.
