Monday deadline to register to vote in Az primary election

Anyone wishing to cast a ballot in the July 30 primary election must register to vote by 11:59 p.m. on Monday, July 1.

Races at stake include a Republican primary with Congressman Juan Ciscomani defending his seat against challenger Kathleen Winn, a Democratic county attorney’s contest that decides the race because no Republican registered to run, a Democratic primary for the open District 3 on the Pima County Board of Supervisors and a handful of local legislative races, among others.

If you’ve moved, changed your name, or want to change political parties,
you must complete a new voter registration form — which you can do
online. To register, you must be a U.S. citizen and at least 18 years
old at the time of the election.

Independents, who make up roughly a third of Arizona’s registered voters, will be able to request a ballot in the Democratic or Republican primaries.

Those signed up to vote by mail will receive ballots after officials begin to send them out next week. Request an early ballot at the Pima County Recorder’s Office website.

Voters can register to vote or change their registration online at or by filling out a new voter registration form, which can be found at most post offices, libraries and other locations. (Find specific spots at the Pima County Recorder’s Office website.) The Recorder’s Office, 240 N. Stone Ave., will also be open until 10 p.m. on Monday, July 1, to assist people who want to change their registrations.

Area voters can check their registration status easily at the Pima County Recorder’s Office website.
