    Pima County Recorder F. Ann Rodriguez is issuing a Stranger Danger advisory to all voters in Pima County: DO NOT give your voted early ballots to a stranger.

    Early ballotThis warning includes a stranger who is at your front door.

    • If you are contacted by phone by individuals representing various organizations asking if they can pick up your voted ballots at your home and take them to the Post Office or the Recorder’s Office, say NO. 
    • If they show up at your door making the offer to take your voted ballots to the Post Office or Recorder’s Office, just tell them NO. 
    • You have no idea who these people are. Never give your voted ballot to a stranger. 

    The Pima County Recorder’s Office does not approve of giving voted ballots to a stranger as there is no guarantee that these individuals are actually taking them to the Post Office or turning them in to the Recorder’s Office.

    Ms. Rodriguez states that you still have plenty of time to mail your voted ballots so that we receive them in our office by Election Day.

    The only people you should trust with your voted ballot to deliver it to the Recorder’s Office are:
    • a family member 
    • a trusted co-worker 
    • a friend 
    • a next-door neighbor 
    • the U.S. Postal Service. 
    “Your voted ballot is your choice in shaping our Democracy, so make sure your voice is heard,” Ms. Rodriguez said.

    If voters want to hand deliver their voted ballot, they can take it to any of the Recorder’s Office Early Voting locations. There is a complete list of early voting sites with hours of operation located on the Recorder’s website at www.recorder.pima.gov. The Early Voting locations include any of the Recorder’s Office locations.
