The Pima County Recorder's Office is reminding local voters they have until Friday at 5 p.m. to request a vote-by-mail ballot.

Voters who are registered as an independent or Party Not Designated can vote in the upcoming primary by selecting one political party ballot they wish to vote: Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, Americans Elect or Green party candidates.

“Independent voters are missing out on this opportunity and could have a very large influence in some contested primary races,” said County Recorder F. Ann Rodriguez.

A person can request a vote-by-mail ballot either by requesting on electronically on the Pima County Recorder’s web site or by calling (520) 724-4330.

Those who are currently traveling may call toll free at (800) 775- 7462 and then ask for extension 44330.

Additionally, the County Recorder’s office has several early voting sites open for voters.
