Attention All Mesquite Residents
A Mesquite District candidate-only ballot, that includes only the names of the candidates in the Mesquite District Council race, has been mailed to all qualified electors in the Mesquite District. The candidate-only ballot will arrive in a white envelope with purple lettering. All Mesquite District voters should use this ballot to vote in the Mesquite District Council race.
Voters on the Permanent Early Voting List that have previously received a ballot may use that ballot to vote for all other State, County and local races/issues. If you have already voted in the Mesquite District Council Election and do not return the Mesquite District candidate-only ballot, your prior vote will be counted.
If you are not on the Permanent Early Voting List and request that an early ballot be mailed to you, prior to the August 15, 2014 5:00 p.m. deadline, you will receive a ballot with incomplete Mesquite District candidate information. This ballot should be used to vote for State, County and other City races and/or issues. It should not be used to vote for the Mesquite District Council race. The Mesquite District candidate-only ballot should be used to vote for a Mesquite District candidate.
If you are not on the Permanent Early Voting List and you do not request an early ballot, you can vote for State, County and City items at your polling place location on Election Day. You may also request a Mesquite District candidate-only ballot at your polling place.
Replacement Ballot Centers have been established for Mesquite District residents who wish to vote their candidate-only ballot in person. The Replacement Ballot Centers are open Monday through Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. through August 25th and from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Election Day, August 26th.

Have You Received Your Early Ballot?
Voters on the Permanent Early Voting List (PEVL) not affiliated with one of the four recognized parties (Democratic, Republican, Libertarian and Americans Elect) will not automatically receive an early ballot. Voters on PEVL not affiliated with a recognized party must first designate a ballot preference with the Maricopa County Elections Department. Ballot preference requests can be made:
- By returning the “90 Day Notice” card,
- By phone at 602-506-1511, or
- In writing (including name, address, date of birth, party ballot selection, and signature) to the Maricopa County Elections, Attn: Early Voting, 510 S. Third Avenue, Phoenix, AZ 85003.
The deadline to designate a party or city-only ballot preference and still receive an early ballot by mail is 5:00 p.m. on Friday, August 15, 2014.
Voters that do not make a ballot designation by the deadline, will be required to vote at an Early Voting Location or at their polling location where they will be required to designate a ballot preference.
This process does not apply to the General Election.
Permanent Early Voting List
Arizona has a law that allows voters to place their names on a Permanent Early Voting List. Voters on this list will automatically receive an early ballot, by mail, approximately 26 days before each election in which the voter is qualified to participate.
