Ballot By Mail Notice

Why did I receive a Ballot By Mail Notice?

State law requires we send notices to all Pima County registered voters on the Active Early Voting List 90 days before an election to confirm their addresses. The nearly 500,000 notices also tell voters when ballots will be mailed to them for the July 30 Primary Election and later for the November 5 General Election.

The notice can be used to:
  • Opt out of a particular election
  • Make changes to your address
  • In some cases, choose a ballot style (see below for more information.)
  • Update your signature
    • Ballot by Mail relies on our ability to compare your affidavit signature with up-to-date signatures in your voter file. This notice is an opportunity to update your signature with our office.

The U.S. Postal Service cannot forward Official Election Mail, according to state law. The forms offer an opportunity to change your permanent address or give us a temporary address where you can receive Official Election Mail for the Primary and General elections.

If you have no changes, no action is necessary.

You can find more on how to update your information on our Register page. You can also call us at 520-724-4330.

I recently received a Ballot By Mail Notice. Did it really come from the Recorder’s Office?
Yes, It was from us.

During the next several months, you will likely receive lots of campaign- and election-related mail from political parties, civic groups and other organizations.

To make sure it is Official Election Mail from the Recorder’s Office, look for:
  • The name of the Pima County Recorder, Gabriella Cázares-Kelly
  • Our return address
  • The words “Official Election Mail authorized by the U.S. Postal Service”
If you don’t see any of these, it probably didn’t come from us. Another tip is to look for a “Paid by” note on the materials. Official Election Mail from us won’t have that message.

Still have questions? Call us at (520) 724-4330.

I’m an Independent/No Party Designated Voter. Can I still vote in the partisan races?

If you are not a member of a recognized political party – Democratic, Republican, Green, No Labels or Libertarian - you may choose a ballot for a party with an open primary. In this election, you may choose a Democrat or Republican ballot by using this form to select a ballot that allows you to vote in those race

I am a No Labels Party Member. Will I get a Primary ballot?

You are a member of a party that chose not to participate in the 2024 Primary Election. You will receive a blank ballot unless you live in a city or town that is holding a non-partisan election.

Does it change my registration to request a party ballot?

You are registered to vote but not with a recognized political party. If you want to vote in the partisan races, you must choose a political party for your ballot for this election. This will not change your party affiliation. It only instructs us which ballot to send you for this election.

Why can’t I request a Green Party/No Labels/Libertarian ballot?

These political parties have “closed” primaries, and ONLY members of those parties can participate in their primaries.

A friend of mine is a registered voter but didn’t receive this notice. Why not?

Only registered voters on the Active Early Voting List will receive a notice. All voters are encouraged to check their voter registration ahead of any election.
