Aug. 13 is final day to request early ballot

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. - The Coconino County Elections Office would like to remind registered voters that the last day to request a mailed early ballot for the Aug. 24 Primary Election is Friday, Aug. 13.

To request a mailed ballot, voters may call Elections at (928) 679-7860; toll-free (800) 793-6181; send a written request to Coconino County Elections, 110 E. Cherry, Flagstaff AZ 86001; or submit an on-line request at www.coconino.az.gov/elections and click on "Early Ballot Request."

The week of Aug. 16-20, voters may still cast an early ballot, but must vote in person at the County Elections Office or one of the satellite early voting locations listed below.

Voters also have the option of signing up to be on the Permanent Early Voter (PEV) list. If a voter chooses to participate in this program, an early voting ballot for every election in which they are eligible to vote will be sent to the voter without having to request an early ballot for each election.

To review the requirements for becoming a permanent early voter, visit the Elections website, and click on "Permanent Early Voting"; the request form may be downloaded. A voter must submit a written request to be added to the PEV list.

Early voting is available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (unless otherwise noted) at the following locations:

• Coconino County Elections, 110 E. Cherry, Flagstaff

• Grand Canyon School District Office,1 Boulder Street (Monday- Thursday)

• Page City Hall, 697 Vista Avenue

• Williams City Hall, 113 S. First Street (Monday-Thursday)

• Fredonia Town Hall, 25 N. Main

• Coconino County Elections Office, Tuba City/Basement of Tuba City Library

• Sedona City Clerk, 102 Roadrunner Drive (Coconino voters only)

The Aug. 24 Primary Election is an "open" partisan primary, which means a voter who is registered with a recognized political party will receive the ballot for that party. The recognized political parties for the 2010 elections are Democrat, Republican, Libertarian and Green Party.

If a voter is registered with no party affiliation, or with an unrecognized political party (Non-Partisan, Independent, Other, or other preference), they must request a specific party ballot (Republican, Democratic or Green Party).

For more information, call the Elections Office at (928) 779-7860; toll-free (800) 793-6181.
