The election happening in the City of Tucson is a ballot by mail election. This means the county will automatically mail a ballot to every eligible voter. Council-members are nominated by the ward they wish to represent (1, 2 or 4) in the primary election and are elected to the city council at-large in the general election.
INDEPENDENT VOTERS: If you are registered as an Independent and would like to vote in the primary, you must select one party ballot to vote: either the Democratic, Republican or Libertarian Party ballot. Check your mail for a postcard from the City of Tucson, which you can use to make your selection.
Selecting a party ballot will not change your status as an independent voter. If you choose not to vote in the primary, you are still able to vote in the General Election. The purpose of the primary is to nominate which candidates advance to the general election ballot.
Because this is a ballot by mail election, there will be 7 ballot replacement centers (voting locations). Voters can visit any of these locations to drop off their ballot, cast it in-person or receive a replacement.

Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Election Day. Don't forget your ID!2. Can I vote early?
Absolutely. If you are on the Permanent Early Voting List (PEVL), you will automatically receive a ballot in your mailbox beginning 27 days before the election. Voters not on PEVL may make a one-time early ballot request.3. What if I have an emergency and can't vote on Election Day?
Early voting is available through 5pm the Friday before Election Day. If a voter cannot vote during the early voting period, emergency voting is available beginning 5pm the Friday before Election Day through 5pm the Monday before Election Day. Voters must sign an affidavit under penalty of perjury that they have an emergency that prevents them from voting on Election Day (voters do not need to disclose what the emergency is).4. Do I need ID to vote early?
If you vote early by mail, ID is not required. Your signature on the early ballot affidavit is compared to your voter registration record by the County Recorder to determine if the signature is valid.
ID is required if you vote early in person, or at a polling place or voting center on Election Day.
Military and Overseas voters have special voting rights under federal and state law (Uniformed & Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA)). These rights include the use of a Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) to register to vote and request an early ballot as well as the use of a Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot (FWAB), which serves as an emergency back-up ballot.

No, voters do not have to vote everything on their ballot. The votes they do cast will still be counted. However, we encourage voters to vote down the ballot as local races, propositions, judges, etc. can impact voters' daily lives.
