TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -
The 2014 Primary Election is coming up on August 26 and Independent voters now make up almost one third of the registered voters in Pima County.

So far only nine percent of the eligible voters who are registered with no party affiliation have requested a ballot.

The Pima County Recorder’s office is reminding those voters that they can one political party ballot to vote for in the Primary elections.

Voters can choose to vote on a Democratic, Republican, Libertarian, Americans Elect, or Green party ballot. Independent voters in the Town of Oro Valley can choose to vote a ballot with the just the Town candidates on it.

Selecting a political party ballot will NOT change your Voter Registration to the political party ballot you requested.

 “Independent voters are missing out on this opportunity and could have a very large influence in some contested primary races”, says Pima Country Recorder Ann Rodriguez.

The easiest way to order a ballot is to call our office and speak directly to a staff member. The phone number is (520) 724-4330.

You simply need to let the operator know which political party ballot you would like to receive.

 To order your vote-by-mail ballot online, go to the Pima County Recorder’s web site at www.recorder.pima.gov and click on the link for “Early Ballot Request.” The link has a place for you to designate which political party ballot you would like to receive.

The deadline to order a vote-by-mail ballot is Friday, August 15, at 5 p.m.
