Primary election mail-in deadlines, ballot information - Tucson News Now

Deadline for Tucson's primary election ballots is tonight

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Since there are not contested races, there's not much of a primary election for a few Tucson City Council ward seats, but the voting must go on.

The Tucson City Clerk needs your mail in primary election ballot by 7:00 p.m. That means if you received a ballot in the mail for the primary races for Wards 3, 5, and 6, and never sent it back, you need to drop if off tonight if you want it counted. 

Voters may also get a replacement ballot at those same voting locations from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the following locations:

- Donna R. Liggins Recreation Center, 2160 N. Sixth Avenue

- El Pueblo Senior Center, 101 W. Irvington Road

- City of Tucson Parks and Recreation Administration, 900 S. Randolph Way

- Tucson City Clerks Elections Center, 800 E. 12th Street

Those who ask for a new ballot must present a signed, sworn statement that their ballot was lost, destroyed or not received.

Since the races aren't contested, incumbent Democrat Karin Uhlich, will face Republican challenger Ben Beuhler Garcia in Ward 3 in November.

Ward 5 incumbent and Democrat Richard Fimbres will running against Republican Micheal Polak.

And in Ward 6 Democratic incumbent Steve Kozachik has no opposition in the primary or the general election so he'll be cruising to a re-election.
