TUCSON, Ariz. — Pima County will open "Emergency Voting Sites" one day before the Arizona Presidential Primary next week.

According to Pima County Recorder F. Ann Rodriguez, these locations are for voters with health concerns who are worried about voting at polling places.

Voting sites are open to all registered Democrats with an emergency.

“According to Arizona statute, voters must sign a form that we provide stating that they have an emergency and need to vote on March 16,” says Pima County Recorder F. Ann Rodriguez. “However, the voter does not need to write or state the specifics of the emergency.”

Pima County says its voting sites for the Arizona Presidential Primary are well-sticked with Clorox wipes and hand sanitizer.

“We’ve been doing it this way for decades. This is our standard procedure,” says Rodriguez. She adds, “People are more than welcome to bring their own pens to mark their ballot.”

Here are the locations that will be open Monday, March 16, 2020 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.:

  • Pima County Recorder’s Main Office, 240 North Stone Avenue, first floor
  • Pima County Recorder’s Office Annex, 6550 S. Country Club Road
  • Pima County Recorder’s East Side Annex, 6920 East Broadway Boulevard, Suite D
