If you are still hanging on to your mail-in ballot for Tucson’s primary election today, it is too late to put it in the mail.

Instead, ballots can be dropped off at one of several city-run voting locations open Tuesday from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. They are:

  • Department of Housing and Community Development, 320 N. Commerce Park Loop
  • Morris K. Udall Regional Center, 7200 E. Tanque Verde Road
  • Donna R. Liggins Recreation Center, 2160 N. Sixth Ave.
  • William Clements Recreation Center, 8155 E. Poinciana Drive
  • El Pueblo Senior Center, 101 W. Irvington Road
  • Parks and Recreation Administration Building, Randolph Park, 900 S. Randolph Way
  • Tucson City Clerk Elections Center, 800 E. 12th St.

The primary will decide the Democratic nominees in Tucson’s mayoral race and in the Ward 1 race for City Council, the only two contested races in the primary. It will also decide whether a write-in GOP candidate in Ward 1, Sam Nagy, will qualify for the November ballot.
