Early election ballots are pouring in to the Pima County Recorder's office. More than 133,000 have been processed and sent to the county's elections department. Time is running out for voters who want to cast an early vote this election.
Voters have until 5 p.m. Friday October 28th  to request a mail-in ballot to vote early. If those ballots are mailed on-time- they will be counted before election day. 
Voters are encouraged to mail the ballots in as soon as they are ready to make a decision. The Pima County Recorder's office says they must check every signature on every ballot to make sure the signature matches what they have on file. If they don't match, they have to be sent back , which can be a lengthy process. 
Voters who are not able to mail the early ballots, may also drop them off at any polling place. 
Early in-person voting is also an option, which ends Friday November 4th. Voters can choose to vote at the County Recorder's office or  at any on-site voting locations.
