    votingPima County voters registered as Independents, or Party Not Designated, can choose one political party ballot to vote for the Primary election. They can choose to vote a Democratic, Republican or Green party ballot.

    Selecting a political party ballot will not change the voter's registration to the political party ballot requested. The voter will remain listed as an Independent or Party Not Designated voter. Those who would like to review their registration can do so online at the Pima County Recorder's Office website under the "Check your Registration" link. That link provides voter information, including registration details, precinct/districts and eligible election details. 

    Pima County Recorder F. Ann Rodriguez encourages Independent Voters to exercise their right to vote. “Independent voters have a very large influence in some contested primary races”, she said. 

    Independent voters now constitute 31 percent of the registered voters in Pima County.  

    Voters in the category of Independent, or Party Not Designated, can request a vote-by-mail ballot by calling the Pima County Recorder's Office at (520) 740-4330. All they'll need to do is let the operator know which political party ballot they would like to receive. They can also order their vote-by-mail ballot online at the Pima County Recorder’s website. Select the “Early Ballot Request” link and choose which political party ballot you would like to receive. The last day to request an early ballot for the Primary Election is Aug. 19.

    For more information and to see a list of early voting sites in Pima County, visit the Recorder’s website or call the office at (520) 724-4330.
