City of Phoenix Voters

The election happening in the City of Phoenix is a Vote Center jurisdictional runoff election. City of Phoenix voters residing in both Districts 6 and 8 will be electing Council Members. This runoff is required by the City Charter and State Law because no candidates for these offices received a majority of the votes cast in the November 8th, 2022 General Election.

How Can I Return My Voted Ballot?

All early ballots must be returned in the ballot affidavit envelope that was provided with the ballot and the envelope must be signed and sealed by the voter. Voted ballots must be received by the City Clerk Department no later than 7 PM on Election Day. Voters have options in returning their ballot. You could return it by mail, drop off your ballot at Phoenix City Hall, or vote in person. Find one of these resources near you by clicking here.

I never received my early ballot?

All voters on the Active Early Voting List, in districts 6 & 8, should receive a ballot in the mail. If you never received your ballot, or it was damaged, you are able to ask the Elections Department to send a ballot by mail by calling (602) 261-VOTE (8683) or emailing [email protected] no later than March 3, the last day to request a ballot by mail. If voting on election day the City will have ten vote centers open to the public. All voting centers will be open for the following three days and times:

  • Saturday, March 11, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Monday, March 13, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Voting FAQ

1. When are the polls open?

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. For the all mail elections voters will automatically receive a ballot in your mailbox beginning 27 days before the election. If you are living in an area not participating in an all mail election voters on the Active Early Voting List (AEVL) will receive ballots automatically. Voters not on AEVL may also make a one-time early ballot request or visit a replacement or voting location.

3. What if I have an emergency and can't vote on 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.

6. Do I have to vote everything on my 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.
