What is a vote by mail election?

Every qualified elector registered within the boundaries of the jurisdiction having a Vote By Mail election will automatically be mailed a ballot. There are no Vote Centers on Election Day to vote in person. Only local elections can be conducted by all mail. Statewide elections cannot be conducted by all mail. Your voted ballot must be received by the Recorder's Office in Bisbee or the Replacement Center no later than 7 pm on Election Day. 

Replacement ballots are available at the Recorder's Office. Replacement ballots are also available at the designated Replacement Center on Election Day. The last day to request a replacement ballot to be mailed is 11 days prior to any election; vote in-person replacement ballots are available until 7 pm on Election Day. Call the County Recorder's Office at 520-432-8358 if you have not received your ballot or you need a replacement ballot.
