PHOENIX – Voters whose early voting ballots were damaged en route due to October storms in the Valley can order replacements from the Maricopa County vote centers.

People who had planned to mail in ballots ahead of Election Day on Nov. 6 can also call the Maricopa County Recorder’s Office at 602-506-1511 to receive a replacement ballot.

This information was released via Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes’ Facebook page.

Tropical storms Rosa and Sergio both brought record setting rain to Arizona this month causing flooding across Phoenix and nearby suburbs.

That water also may have played a role in damaging mail-in ballots.

During the primary election on Aug. 28, Arizona’s Secretary of State Michele Reagan, told KTAR News 92.3 FM’s Bruce St. James and Pamela Hughes that nearly 800,000 votes had been tallied before the election day, either by mail-in ballots or during early voting.

For those who have sent in mail-in ballots, they can be tracked by using a link on the county recorder’s website.

Voters can request a mail-in ballot up until Oct. 26. They can also turn their ballots in at any polling location on Election Day.

We want to hear from you.
