Dear Arizona Voter: Important choices lie ahead. That's why we prepared Arizona's General Election Guide. This year Arizona will be conducting our General Election on November 6, and we hope this pamphlet is a helpful tool for your use.
The pamphlet is divided into three parts:
Part one includes general information about voting.
Part two includes information about each proposition that will appear on the ballot, including the actual language of the measure followed by a description of what the measure does and arguments for and against the measure filed by members of the public.
Part three includes a judicial performance review, provided by the Arizona Commission on Judicial Performance Review, to assist you in reviewing the judges who will be on the ballot.
Please keep the following important dates in mind:
If you are not already registered to vote the voter registration deadline is October 9. For information about your registration, please contact your County Recorder's office found in this guide.
Early Voting is October 11 to October 26. This is the period when early ballots are mailed to registered voters who request one. Contact your County Recorder to receive a ballot in the mail, or to request that your name be placed on the Permanent Early Voting List.
Election Day is November 6. Polling places are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
If you are either in the military or an Arizona voter living overseas, you can find important voting information in part one of this guide.
Local governments will also be holding elections November 6. State and local elections will be combined on one ballot. Contact your County Elections Department for information about local elections or visit the Secretary of State's Website - www.azsos.gov - if you have any questions.
Thank you for taking the time to inform yourself and participate in this important election.
Sincerely, Ken Bennett, Arizona Secretary of State
