    new voter notification cardsF. Ann Rodriguez, the Pima County Recorder, is pleased to announce that her office has started to mail out new voter notification cards to all registered voters in Pima County. This mailing process to notify all voters will take a little over a week to complete since approximately 495,000 voter notification cards are being mailed.

    The voter notification card is one form of identification voters can use when they go to their polling location. In addition, the voter notification card will include their Precinct Number and other information such as: Congressional, Legislative, Supervisor, and School Districts, plus City and Town designations. Each voter should destroy their old voter notification card once they receive their new voter notification card so that there is no confusion when going to the polls.

    This mailing is also a way to test everyone’s address. If you receive a voter notification card for a voter who no longer resides at your address, you are asked to write a note stating that the person no longer lives at that address and place the voter notification card back in the mail. You do not need to add postage to return the voter notification card. “Returning the voter notification cards will help us keep the voter registration roll as clean as possible,” Rodriguez stated. “Federal law does not allow us to remove a voter from the voter registration roll unless undeliverable mail is returned to our office.”

    There have been several precinct number changes within Pima County. However, many voters will see that there have been no changes and the information on their card will be the same as old ID versions. Voters should pay particular attention to the party affiliation noted on their cards. There is a three letter designation listed under “Party” on the voter notification card.

    For example:
    • DEM means you are registered with the Democratic Party
    • REP means you are registered with the Republican Party
    • GRN means you are registered with the Green Party
    • LBT means you are registered with the Libertarian Party
    • PND means Party Not Designated
    • IND means you are registered as an Independent; and have no party affiliation.
    If voters have any questions with any other information printed on their card they should call the Pima County Recorder’s Office at 520-724-4330.

    Since the mailing is being conducted in zip code groups, not all cards are being mailed on the same date. If you do not receive a voter notification card by Monday, April 4, 2016 and you believe you are registered to vote, please call the Recorder’s Voter Registration Division at 724-4330.
