Each election these voters will continue to have the option of voting by mail ballot rather than going to the polls. Early ballots give voters a safe and convenient way to participate in elections while eliminating many of the difficulties that may arise on Election Day that make it more difficult or impossible for some voters to get to the polls. Voting by mail also gives voters the opportunity to spend more time considering the choices available to them and to feel comfortable with their choices.
Included with each ballot is a ballot affidavit envelope to be used for return of ballots. You must sign the ballot affidavit on the envelope for your vote to count. The ballot must be received by the Yavapai County Elections Department by 7:00 p.m. on Election Day. You should also know that official Town Clerk staff does not pick up ballots to return them. If unsolicited assistance to return your ballot is offered by any individual or group, you should decline this type of help and notify the Town Clerk’s Office at 928-759-3028 or 928-759-3135.
The envelope containing the ballot must be signed and placed in the U.S. mail, placed in a Yavapai County drop box or hand delivered to the Yavapai County Elections Department located at 1015 Fair Street in Prescott. A Yavapai County Ballot drop box, is conveniently located in the north parking lot of the Prescott Valley Civic Center located at 7501 Skoog Boulevard in Prescott Valley. It is open until 7:00 p.m. election day.
