Mission: The Cochise County Elections Department administers, prepares, conducts and tallies federal, state and county elections held in Cochise County in a fair and impartial manner, and in accordance with the Arizona Revised Statutes and Federal law. The department also provides contract election services and assistance to cities within the County and special districts (school districts, fire districts, water districts and the community college district). These services include securing polling locations, hiring and training poll workers, tabulating ballots and preparing reports of results.
The department also handles petitions and campaign finance filing for candidates as well as referendum, initiative, and recall filings and elections. Our goal is to serve the public by managing all elections as accurately, securely, and efficiently as possible, and to reach out to every qualified voter in our county, enabling them to cast their ballot in a friendly and informative environment.
The Elections Department reports to the Board of Supervisors.
