PHOENIX - Early voting in Arizona's Nov. 6 general election starts Thursday.
More than half of Arizona's registered voters use early ballots to vote -- nearly 53 percent in the last presidential election four years ago and 61 percent in 2010.
Early ballots must be in the hands of election officials by 7 p.m. on Nov. 6 to be counted.
It's not too late to request an early ballot. Just visit recorder.maricopa.gov.
They can be dropped off at elections offices, mailed in or dropped off a polling place on election day.
Early ballots can be requested through Oct. 26, but Secretary of State Ken Bennett says approximately 1.5 million Arizona voters have signed up to automatically get early ballots.
Maricopa County mails 1.1 million early ballots Thursday.
And voters can head to the polls early until Nov. 2. You can find a location on the Maricopa County Recorder's website.
