Starting July 22, voters may drop off their finished ballots at Chandler City Hall, 175 S. Arizona Ave., Chandler, from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday. On election day, Aug. 4, finsihed ballots may also be dropped off at City Hall from 6 a.m.-7 p.m., according to the city.
To vote in person either early or on election day, registered voters must present identification. A list of acceptable IDs is available at www.chandleraz.gov/elections under "Frequently Asked Questions," according to the city.
Voters have until Friday, July 24 to request an early ballot be mailed to their home address for the primary election. To request an early ballot by mail, call 602-506-1511 or submit a request online from Maricopa County at www.recorder.maricopa.gov/earlyvotingballot/earlyvotingballotrequest.aspx.
When requesting an early ballot, voters may request a one-time ballot by mail or have the option to sign up for the Permanent Early Voting List. Once a registered voter has signed up to be on the Permanent Early Voting List, they no longer have to request an early ballot be mailed; the ballot will automatically be mailed to the voter 27 days prior to any election.
The Maricopa County Elections Department recommends that ballots be returned by mail no later than Wednesday, July 29.
Registered Independent voters are eligible to vote in the primary election. Independent voters must choose a ballot for the Republican or Democratic slate or a city issue-only ballot. City of Chandler ballot measures will appear on the ballot for both parties, so all voters will be able to vote for Chandler City Council candidates.
