INDEPENDENT VOTERS CAN CHOOSE A PRIMARY BALLOT
Pima County Recorder F. Ann Rodriguez would like to remind Pima County voters who are not registered as one of the major political parties (otherwise known as Independent voters or Party Not Designated voters) that they have can choose ONE political party ballot to vote for the Primary election. They can choose to vote either a Democrat, Republican, Libertarian or Green party ballot.
Selecting a political party ballot will NOT change your Voter Registration to the political party ballot you requested. You will remain a Party Not Designated (PND) or Independent registered voter.
The easiest way to order a ballot is to call our office and speak directly to a staff member at (520) 740-4330. You simply need to let the operator know which political party ballot you would like to receive. To order your vote-by-mail ballot online, go to the Pima County Recorder’s web site at www.recorder.pima.gov and click on the link for “Early Ballot Request.” The link has a place for you to designate which political party ballot you would like to receive.
Independent voters now make up almost one third of the registered voters in Pima County. “Independent voters are missing out on this opportunity and could have a very large influence in some contested primary races”, states Ms Rodriguez.
