Early voting for the start of the August primaries | New

Early voting for the August 2 primary election began on Wednesday July 6. The only place to vote at the start of the election is the La Paz County Recorder’s Office at 1112 Joshua Avenue, Suite 201.

For state offices, this is a partisan primary election where candidates from the Republican, Democratic and Libertarian parties for the November general election will be selected. Voters registered with these party affiliations will receive the ballot of the party with which they are affiliated. Voters registered as independents can still vote, but must specify a Republican or Democratic ballot. Independents are not allowed to vote in the Libertarian primary.

County Recorder Richard Garcia said people who want to vote early and are registered to vote will need to bring identification with them. He said a valid Arizona driver’s license would be sufficient.

The only early voting ballot box in the county is located inside the registrar’s office.

The last day to request ballots by mail is July 22. The last day for advance voting is July 29.

The Archivist’s office is open 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday. Garcia said they will also be open for early voting on Friday July 22 and Friday July 29 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The general election is scheduled for November 8. The last day to register for this election, if you haven’t already registered, is October 11th. Early voting will begin the following day, October 12.
