WHEN ARE THE ELECTIONS?
All elections are held either in March, May, August or November. The regular countywide Primary and General Elections that contain Federal, State and County Offices are held in August and November of the even numbered years (example, 2016, 2018, and so on). Once an election is called (120 days prior to one of the 4 possible election dates noted above), we will post that information on the Elections Website under the "Current Elections Information" page. There is a special Presidential Preference Election (PPE) that is normally held in March in the year that the President of the United States is elected. This Presidential Preference Election is solely for voters registered within a specific political party to specify their preference for a candidate of their political party for the Office of President.
**The November General Election date always falls on the first Tuesday in November. The August Primary Election date is the first Tuesday in August.

WHERE CAN I FIND INFORMATION ON THE BALLOT ISSUES?
If the ballot issue or issues are for a City, Town or School District, then links to the various jurisdictional websites can be found on the Elections Website under the "Current Elections Information". Within these jurisdictional websites, detailed information should be provided regarding the ballot issues being offered. If the ballot issue or issues are for a Statewide measure (example: Propositions), detailed information regarding those can be found on the Arizona Secretary of State’s Office website at http://azsos.gov. In addition, a Publicity Pamphlet or Informational Pamphlet will be mailed, prior to the election, to each voter or, depending on the type of election being conducted, to each household containing a registered voter. The mailing label on the back of the pamphlet will identify your polling place location. The pamphlet will also contain any pro/con arguments filed on a given issue or issues, if applicable. 

HOW DO I KNOW WHERE TO VOTE?
The vote center information can be found on the Elections Website.
