Early ballots continue 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 and 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.
Returning Ballot for Counting
The envelope containing the ballot must be 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 drop box is conveniently located in the north parking lot of the Prescott Valley Civic Center located at 7501 East Civic Circle in Prescott Valley.
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 Town Clerk or delivered to the Yavapai County Elections Department by 7 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.
For further information on voting by mail, please call the Prescott Valley Town Clerk’s Office at 928-759-3028. Staff in the Town Clerk’s Office will answer questions between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. If a situation arises and you don't know what to do, please call our office
