2023 Elections
Maricopa County will be overseeing many local Ballot-By-Mail elections. The ones pertinent to LD3 voters are listed below. The county will automatically mail a ballot to every eligible voter on October 11. Please plan to complete and return your ballot as early as possible. 

 

How to vote by mail
When voting by mail, the completed ballot must be placed in the return envelope and THE ENVELOPE MUST BE SIGNED. Unsigned ballots will not be counted. Please include your phone number on the envelope as well. This is not added to your vote record - it is only used by the signature verification team if they have questions for you. The ballot can then be mailed - postage free - to the county recorder’s office or dropped at any official drop box location. Ballots must be mailed no later than 7 days prior to election day. 

How should I vote?
LD3 Democrats recommends a YES VOTE on all measures on your November 2023 ballot.
