On Oct. 7, Arizonans were sent mail-in ballots and began to vote early for the Nov. 3 general election.
To help you get prepared to vote, the Green Valley News and Sahuarita Sun created a voter’s guide for local and statewide elections. Below you will find the race, the position’s role and responsibilities, each candidate’s background and campaign platform or priorities, related coverage links and a curated discussion question.
In addition to state and federal races, Pima County voters will also vote on two statewide propositions and multiple local propositions.
Each of these races are connected to important issues pertaining to the community: sustainability, election security, public safety, economy, COVID-19, etc. The included curated discussion questions can help you get started discussing these races with your neighbors (but feel free to use the space to discuss the races generally). Please review our guidelines before posting on NABUR and keep conversations civil.
For now, we have only included contested races. Uncontested races where a candidate was already decided will come at a later date.
Oct. 23 is the last day to register to vote, update your information and request a mail-in ballot. You can register in person during business hours at your county’s elections office, online at any time or by mail. Please note that registrations will not be accepted after 5 p.m. on Oct. 23.
Voters can vote by mail, drop-off their ballots or vote in-person.
If mailing, make sure to mail your ballots as soon as possible and no later than Oct. 27 to ensure officials receive it before the deadline, which is Nov. 3, at 7 p.m. Ballots are postage paid. You don’t need a stamp to mail it to your county’s elections office.
Return an early ballot at a secure election drop-box or at any voting location. Visit any of these drop box locations Monday–Friday 8am-5pm to drop off your ballot early. You can also drop it off at your designated voting site on election day, which can be found here. Please note drop boxes will close at 5:00pm on November 2.
Cast a ballot in person on Election Day. To find your voting site in Pima County, you can use this search feature provided by the Pima County Recorder’s Office.
