PHOENIX — After nearly 50,000 voters received incorrect early mail ballots last week in Pinal County, the Board of Supervisors approved a solution Tuesday that will send early voters in the impacted cities municipal-only ballots to vote in city and town contests, officials said.

In-person voting in the seven impacted municipalities — Casa Grande, Eloy, Maricopa, Mammoth, Superior, plus the portions of Apache Junction and Queen Creek in Pinal County — will use a separate municipal ballot, according to the Pinal County Government.

The decisions were made at a scheduled special session Tuesday at 2:40 p.m. after 46,000 were missing municipal contests.

The parts of Queen Creek and Apache Junction in Maricopa County were not affected, and all other federal, state, legislative and county races were correctly listed.

County officials cited earlier that human error was the reason for the mistakes.

The new set of ballots are hoped to be sent out next week, officials said, as state law requires them to arrive at least 15 days prior to Election Day, which is Aug. 2.

The ballot issue was reported last Thursday by Pinal County, a day after they were sent out, the Arizona Secretary of State’s Office said.
