FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

President Fann and Speaker Bowers on mail-in ballots and the U.S. Postal Service

STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – Senate President Karen Fann and House Speaker Rusty Bowers issued the following statement today on early ballot delivery in Arizona.

“With panicked reporting from the media and politically-aimed accusations coming from Arizona’s Secretary of State, it’s understandable that some voters in the state might have concerns over the delivery of their ballots by Election Day.

“We want to make it very clear that the U.S. Postal Service in Arizona has done an effective job of delivering early ballots and will continue to do so. The main postal facility in Phoenix, which processes all mail in the state, currently handles 9 million pieces of mail each day but is capable of handling up to 11.5 million pieces daily. Because of this, we are confident that any additional volume related to early voting and absentee ballots will be properly managed and delivered in a timely manner.

“Counties will begin mailing ballots on October 7. Voters must mail their ballots by Tuesday, October 27, or sooner, to give ample time for it to be delivered and counted in the November 3 general election. After October 27, voters can drop off their ballots at any ballot drop-box, drop-off location, early voting location, or Election Day voting location in their counties on or before Election Day. Voters who choose not to vote by mail this year can vote in person on November 3. Despite the rumors and rhetoric out there today, every vote will count.”
