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.</p><p>Early ballots must be received by the City Clerk's Office no later than 7 p.m. on Election Day, May 21. 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.  It is recommended you mail your ballot at least six days before Election Day. Please note that a mailed ballot with a postmark of May 21 or earlier will not be acceptable if it is received by the City Clerk Department after 7 p.m. on Election Day.</p><p>Another option for voters is to drop off their voted early ballot in the signed affidavit envelope to Phoenix City Hall, 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. Early ballots may also be dropped off during voting hours at any city voting center on Saturday, May 18, Monday May 20 or Election Day, Tuesday, May 21.
