 Arizona is an open primary state. Independents may vote for Candidates of recognized parties in these Primary Elections, but can choose only one party’s ballot.

How are voters, who are registered Independents and on the PEVL notified about primaries so they can identify the party ballot they wish to vote?

Those who are not affiliated with a recognized party must complete the bottom half of the letter and mail back to the Recorder’s Office with their ballot choice.
