Oh, the misinformationNov 5th, 2012 | By Julie Erfle | Category: elections, Featured Articles, Main Article
Rumors are flying about all kinds of voter suppression tactics being used in this election cycle, particularly here in Arizona. From the Tea Party poll watchers, Verify the Vote, who Dems believe are working to intimidate first-time and Latino voters, to incorrect election dates on Spanish language voting materials, we have more than our share of questionable tactics and human errors. But several organizers have told me it’s the early ballots that seem to be confusing many voters, so here’s what you need to know.
The polls are open tomorrow from 6am to 7pm. If you did not mail your early ballot in time, you can drop it off at any polling location. Just don’t forget to sign and date the envelope. If, however, you made a mistake on your early ballot and need a new one, you must go to your assigned polling place to receive a new ballot. If you fill out a provisional ballot at the wrong location, it will not be counted.
Oh, and if you happen to be a Democrat who received a robocall from Jeff Flake with a helpful reminder about where to vote, I suggest you double and triple-check the location. You can find the correct information on your assigned polling location at this website.
