Voters Encouraged to Turn In Early BallotsVoters Encouraged to Turn In Early Ballots<div class="ExternalClass9183317AEC98445F8751997302126BF0"><div>Early ballots have been mailed to voters on the Permanent Early Voting List and to residents who requested them in advance for the Aug. 29 Phoenix City Council Election in Districts 2, 4, 6 and 8. Voters should take the time they need to consider their choices and mark their ballot. However, voters who complete their ballot early are encouraged to return the ballot as soon as it is voted. Returning voted ballots as early as possible provides more time for signature verification and processing so that final results are available sooner.</div><div><br></div><div>Early ballots must be received by the City Clerk Department no later than 7 p.m. on Election Day, Aug. 29. Voters who place their voted ballot in the mail should allow for delivery time for the ballot to arrive at the City Clerk’s office by the deadline. The United States Postal Service advises to allow five days for delivery of first class mail. Please note that a mailed ballot with a postmark of Aug. 29 or earlier will not be acceptable if it is received by the City Clerk Department after 7 p.m. on Election Day.</div><div><br></div><div>Another option for voters is to bring their early ballot to the City Clerk’s office, which is also serving as an in-person early voting location. The Clerk’s Office is located on the 15th floor of Phoenix City Hall, 200 W. Washington St., Phoenix, AZ, 85003 and is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
