    F. Ann Rodriguez, the Pima County Recorder, is pleased to announce that approximately 227,000 vote-by-mail ballots were mailed today for the 2014 Primary Election for all voters on the Permanent Early Voting List (PEVL) who are registered as one of the political parties and to those Independent or Party Not Designated (PND) voters who have requested a political party ballot.

    Voters should receive their ballots no later than Tuesday, Aug. 5, 2014.

    Rodriguez stated that voters should be looking for a midsized “GREEN” mailing envelope. The envelopes for the vote-by-mail packages mailed to voters are now GREEN.

    “We decided to change the mailing envelope to green because we wanted to make the ballots stand out in voters’ mail boxes,” Rodriguez said. “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 used to return your voted ballot have not changed. They are still bright yellow.

    Your vote-by-mail ballot must be received by the time the polls close on Election Day, Tuesday, Aug. 26, 2014. In order to meet that deadline we recommend that you mail your ballot by Friday, Aug. 22, 2014.

    If you do not mail your ballot by that date, we recommend that you hand-deliver it to ensure it reaches the Recorder’s Office in time. You can drop off your vote-by-mail ballot at any of the three Recorder’s Offices: 115 N. Church Ave., 6550 S. Country Club Road, or 6920 E. Broadway Blvd., Suite D. You can also drop off your vote-by-mail ballot at any polling location on Election Day, Aug. 26, 2014.
