Due to the impact of COVID-19, Maricopa County approved an Election Day and Emergency Voting Plan (PDF) to provide voters with a safe, secure, reliable and accessible August Primary Election.
Instead of one assigned polling location, voters will have more than 90 locations to choose from on Election Day, located across the county to ensure in-person voting is still an option for all communities.
All vote centers will provide space for physical distancing and will implement heightened safety and cleaning measures, including frequently cleaning high touch surfaces.
To allow voters time to cast a ballot, polling locations will be open in phases before Election Day. In coordination with the Early Voting Plan, 50-60 locations will be open for at least two weeks, including in 23 malls and retail facilities across the county. The majority of the vote centers will offer extended hours of service including weekends and are located near bus routes and public transportation.
Maricopa County Elections had not yet finalized the location of voting centers in Scottsdale at print time. Those locations will be posted at Scottsdale.Vote once determined.
If you are not already registered to vote in Scottsdale, you have until July 6 to complete your registration so you can participate in the August primary election.
Early balloting remains popular among city residents as well. For Scottsdale residents who are registered to receive them, early ballots will be available beginning Wednesday, July 8. The last day to request an early ballot in the mail is July 24.
Voters who are not affiliated with any political party and who are on the Permanent Early Voting List will not automatically receive a ballot for Scottsdale’s Aug. 4 primary election – but you have the option of requesting a political party ballot of your choice or a Scottsdale-only ballot.
