According to the Maricopa County Recorder’s Office website, registered voters should check back in October for specific voting location information. They can do so by visiting BeBallotReady.Vote

Early voters can also sign up for email reminders and text message updates so they can be alerted when their ballot is going to be mailed to them, when the filled out ballot has been received by the recorder’s office, and when it has been verified and tabulated. 

Those who want to become paid poll workers or volunteer registering voters can sign up here. Those interested must be registered to vote.

On August 14, the Maricopa County Elections Department revealed that more voters participated in the 2020 Primary Election than ever before.
