For polling place elections, registered voters have the option to request an early ballot from Yavapai County Voter Registration, which provides the same benefits as a vote-by-mail election. To request an early ballot, contact Yavapai County Voter Registration at (928) 771-3250.

Early Ballots and Voting by Mail
