Most independent voters in Maricopa on the Permanent Early Voter List have not yet received the mail-in ballot for the primary election, and if they want one of those ballots they must take action by Friday.

Many of those voters missed this postcard that was mailed in June, which they needed to fill out to say which party ballot wanted.

Just 63,000 of the 400,000 thousand early independent voters got their ballots as of Tuesday. Voters who still want a mail-in ballot must mail the postcard, fax or call the Maricopa County Recorder's Office by Friday.

For more information, go to the County Election website.

"Whether you're an independent, whether you're a party person and you feel you should've gotten a ballot, you need to call us let know," said Recorder Helen Purcell. "We can look into it - see if we need to send you one."

If you are going to opt out of voting by mail, you can still go to an early voting locations or to the polls on Primary Election Day, August 30.
