In the United States, Election Day is the annual day set by law for the general elections of federal public officials. It is statutorily set as the first Tuesday after November 1.

Presidential elections are held every four years. Many state and local government offices are also elected on Election Day. There are often local propositions on the ballot as well.

This year, Election Day is November 3, 2020.

Is it important to vote?

Absolutely! It is a wonderful responsibility and a privilege to do the necessary research to cast your vote for leaders who will represent you on a variety of issues - for example: education, ethics, and the economy.

Where can I get more information about the candidates and the propositions?

Here are some resources to consider:

Other ways to learn more about candidates and/or propositions:

  • Study candidate websites. Take special note of the candidate's issues and of any groups that have endorsed that candidate.
  • Contact a candidate by phone, email, or mail with questions about their positions on various issues.
  • Attend local meetings, debates, or speeches where the candidates are present.
  • Ask your family members and friends for their opinions on candidates and propositions.
  • Ask your pastor or other leaders of faith for their opinions on candidates and propositions.

What is the deadline to mail in my early ballot?

If you requested an early ballot, it is recommended that you mail it by Tuesday, Oct. 27th since the ballot must be received by end-of-day on Election Day in order to be counted.

Alternatively, you may take your Vote-by-Mail ballot to ANY Pima County polling location on Election Day, Tuesday, November 3, 2020 between the hours of 6:00am and 7:00pm and give it to a poll worker.

If you have misplaced your early ballot, you may go to your polling place and vote there in-person on election day.

When will my early ballot be counted?

Election officials start counting early ballots, including mail-in ballots, 14 days before the election. For 2020, that date is October 20.

To ensure that your mail-in ballot is counted, don't forget to SIGN and DATE the envelope containing your ballot. Including your phone number is optional, but is a great way to make it easier on election workers if there are any questions about your ballot.

How can I find out the election results?

Election results released on election night are "unofficial” results. The results do not become official until all early ballots and provisional ballots have been processed and tabulated. For small jurisdiction elections, that may occur within a few days after Election Day. For major elections, that may not occur for up to two weeks after Election Day.
