Voter deadlines are near for Scottsdale’s general election

Posted

Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 8, but several important voter deadlines — including the last day to register to vote — are right around the corner.

Unlike Scottsdale’s November 2021 special election, this is not an election by mail only — in-person voting and vote by mail options are available.

Here are some important dates to know:

  •  Tuesday, Oct. 11: Last day to register to vote: If you do not know if you are qualified to vote in this election, visit BeBallotReady.Vote or call the Maricopa County Elections Department at 602-506-1511.
  •  Wednesday, Oct. 12: Ballots are mailed to those on the Active Early Voting List: To track the status of your ballot, visit BeBallotReady.Vote or text “JOIN” to 628-683. If you do not want an early ballot, you can cast a ballot at any Vote Center (see below).
  •  Wednesday, Oct. 12: In-person voting begins: You can request a replacement ballot, vote in person, or drop off your voted early ballot at the following Scottsdale locations:
    • Florence Ely Nelson Desert Park, 8950 E. Pinnacle Peak Road
    • Indian Bend Wash Visitor Center, 4201 N. Hayden Road

During this period, Scottsdale City Hall (3939 N. Drinkwater Boulevard) will be a ballot drop off site.

  •  Friday, Oct. 28 – Last day to request a ballot by mail.
  •  Tuesday, Nov. 1 – Recommended last day to mail completed ballot
  •  Tuesday, Nov. 8 – Election Day

Maricopa County will have “vote anywhere” Vote Centers, which allow voters to choose from various locations, instead of being assigned to one location only. Locations open Wednesday, Oct. 12, with more opening throughout early voting. All voting locations will be open 6 a.m.-7 p.m. Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 8.

The list of locations is provided here, but each site has unique hours during early voting and are subject to change. Check hours of operation before going.

Registered Scottsdale voters will select between Pamela Carter and Barry Graham to fill the third and final open seat in Scottsdale’s City Council race.

Incumbents Kathy Littlefield and Solange Whitehead won re-election in the primary by receiving a majority of the votes cast for each Council seat. Winners take office in January 2023.

Scottsdale voters within the Scottsdale Unified School District boundaries will also vote on two governing board candidates out of a pool of five candidates, as well as approve or deny an override for SUSD.
