PHOENIX — Early voting is underway in Arizona for the 2022 primary election and ballots were sent out to voters in Maricopa County on Wednesday.

Arizona’s largest county started sending out mail ballots to registered voters who requested them or are on the Active Early Voting List ahead of Election Day on Aug. 2.

Voters have until July 22 to request a ballot by mail. They must be received by the county recorder by 7 p.m. on Aug. 2 to be counted.

Ten in-person voting centers opened Wednesday along with 15 drop boxes inside government buildings across the Valley and one 24-hour drop box outside the Maricopa County Tabulation and Election Center in downtown Phoenix.

About 40 more voting centers will open on July 22. Sixty-plus more will be available on Aug. 1, and the full contingent will be up and running for Election Day.

Overall, the county will have about 120 more voting centers to choose from in the primary than they did in 2020.

Maricopa County voters can find a site by searching on an address online or by picking from a spreadsheet that lists all the locations and their days and times operation. Some locations will have Saturday hours.

Residents can cast their ballot in person at any location or submit mail ballots at a drop box or via the U.S. Postal Service.

The indoor drop boxes will be accessible only during business hours at the buildings. A live video feed of the 24-hour drop box can be viewed on the county elections department website.

Maricopa County residents can check their registration status and get more election information at BeBallotReady.vote.

Military and overseas ballots were mailed out on June 18.

Voters had until the end of the day Tuesday to register to vote in the primary. The general election is Nov. 8.
