Election Facts

Vote, election, elections, ballot

From our poll workers, to the delivery of early ballots to the Elections Department, all the way through tabulation, bipartisan employees are working in every aspect of the voting process.

Our ballot couriers work in teams of two to securely pick up early ballot envelopes from Maricopa County Vote Centers and drop boxes. They ensure the ballot envelopes are secured in a transport case with tamper evident seals and are delivered to the Elections Department each day.

We also have observers from the political parties present in each area of the election. In tabulation, observers verify tabulation totals, select ballots to be hand counted, and are even present when we maintain equipment.

New County Supervisorial District Map Approved


The Board of Supervisors approved a new map adjusting the boundaries of the County’s five supervisorial districts to account for population and demographic changes over the past decade.

The approval followed a three-week public comment period on five draft maps, a public hearing that detailed the methodology behind redistricting, and several rounds of revisions incorporating public feedback. The new map will be effective on January 1, 2024.
