STEP-BY-STEP HOW TO VOTE
PATIENT VOTING TEAM
A.R.S. § 16-549
A County Recorder or officer in charge of elections may appoint any number of special election boards to facilitate and enable voting by qualified electors who are ill or have a disability. A qualified elector who is confined because of a continuing illness or disability may vote using a ballot-by-mail or by making a verbal or written request to have a special election board personally deliver a ballot to the elector’s residence or other place of confinement. Such requests must be made by 5:00 p.m. on the second Friday before the election. A.R.S. § 16-549(C). Qualified electors who become ill or disabled after the second Friday before the election may nonetheless request personal ballot delivery by a special election board up to, and including, the Monday before the election. The County Recorder or other officer in charge of elections shall honor these requests when possible. A.R.S. § 16-549(D). Electors who are hospitalized after 5:00 p.m. on the second Friday before the election and before 5:00 p.m. on Election Day may request a special election board deliver their ballot to the hospital or other place of confinement. This ballot shall be processed as a provisional ballot to ensure the voter does not vote more than once. A.R.S. § 16-549(D).
