PHOENIX—For Arizona voters looking to avoid casting a ballot in-person this election, Friday is the deadline for voters in Maricopa County to request a mail-in ballot for the 2020 elections.

For registered Arizona voters opting to vote by mail, they’ll need to request their ballot online at the Maricopa County Elections Department by Friday in order to have their ballot mailed out.

Voters can visit Request.Maricopa.Vote or call 602-506-1511 to request a mail-in ballot.

After that, there are two ways to return the ballot – by mail or to drop it off at a secure drop box or voting location.

Voters have the option of signing up for a one-time ballot or to be put on the permanent early voting list. If voters opt for the permanent early voting list, the department will send them a ballot for every election they’re eligible to vote in.

Postage is already included on the envelope, but make sure its sealed, signed with your name and phone number.

The U.S. Postal Service recommends mailing your ballot back at least 7 days before the election, which is Oct. 27. Ballots must be received by 7 p.m. on Nov. 3 to be counted.

If you previously moved and have not received your ballot in the mail, you’ll need to contact the Maricopa County Elections Department before Friday as well. You can check your on-record address through your personalized dashboard at BeBallotReady.Vote.

The elections department says if you need additional time with your ballot, you can also drop it off at any secure ballot box or polling location, which can be found online.

After you’ve mailed in or dropped off your ballot, you can check the status at BeBallotReady.Vote or text “JOIN” to 628-683 to check on your ballot’s status.
