Vote-by-mail ballots sent out to voters

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Vote-by-mail ballots, totaling 227,000 have been mailed out to voters, according to Pima County Recorder, F. Ann Rodriguez.  

These are ballots for the 2014 Primary Election, for voters who are on the permanent early voting list (PEVL) and are registered with one of the political parties, as well as to those independent or party not designated voters who have requested a political party ballot.  

According to the County Recorder's Office voters should receive their ballots no later than Tuesday, August 5.  Voters need to be looking for a mid-sized green colored envelope. 

"We decided to change the mailing envelope to green because we wanted to make the ballots stand out in voters' mail boxes," said Rodriguez. "We hope this will draw attention to their vote-by-mail ballot and encourage people to vote their ballot. Hopefully, with this new green mailing envelope, it will be less likely to get misplaced in a pile of junk mail on someone's countertop."  The envelopes to return the ballot have not changed color, they are still bright yellow, say officials at the County Recorder's Office.  

These vote-by-mail ballots must be received by poll closing on Election Day, Tuesday, August 26.  In order to meet that deadline, the County Recorder's Office suggests mailing the ballot by August 22.  


If the ballot is not in the mail by that date, the recommendation is to hand deliver it to any of the three recorder's offices in Tucson - 115 N. Church Avenue; 6550 S. Country Club Road, or 6920 E. Broadway Boulevard, Ste. D. 

 

Ballots can also be turned in to any polling location on Election Day, August 26.
