    Pima County Recorder F. Ann Rodriguez announced that a breakdown of the results of the provisional and conditional provisional ballots from the November 4, 2014, General Election is now available for Congressional District 2.

    We can now give a breakdown of how many of the provisional and conditional provisional forms were issued to voters in CD2.

    A press release on November 12, 2014, gave a breakdown for the entire county, where there were a total of 776 provisional ballots. We have determined that 479 of those provisional and conditional provisional ballots were from CD2.

    The following is a breakdown of the various reasons why the 479 provisional and conditional provisional ballots in CD2 were not verified and therefore were not counted:


    240 voters went to the wrong polling place. 

    These voters were correctly listed on the poll rosters at their assigned polling place. Under state law, each of these ballots had to be disqualified. 

    176 individuals attempted to vote when they were not eligible to do so.

    Of this group, 79 had never registered to vote in Pima County and 41 had previously registered to vote here but their voter registration was cancelled. 56 of these individuals did register to vote, but registered after the statutory registration cutoff date of October 6, 2014. None of these voter’s names appeared on any poll roster since they were not eligible to vote in Pima County.

    35 voters had in fact voted their early ballot in addition to attempting to vote a second time at the polls.

    All 35 of these ballots were invalidated and the Recorder will request that the Pima County Attorney’s Office investigate all 35 of these individuals for prosecution for attempting to vote twice.

    18 voters did not sign their provisional ballot form.

    Voters must affirm that the information that they completed on the Provisional Ballot form is true. Under state law, each of these ballots had to be disqualified.

    4 individuals indicated that their address was outside of Pima County.

    Under state law, these ballots were disqualified.

    6 voters whose identity could not be confirmed based on the information that they provided on the provisional ballot form.

    Under state law, these ballots were disqualified.


    Voters who were issued a provisional or a conditional provisional ballot can find out whether or not their ballot was counted and if not, the reason why it was not counted. This information is available on our website, www.recorder.pima.gov by clicking on the “Provisional Ballot Status” link. To check the status you must have the receipt number issued to you at the polling place. Voters who have misplaced the receipt or do not have access to the internet can call the Recorder’s Office at 724-4330 to get the status of their ballot.
