I hand-delivered my ballot to the Pima County recorder's office on Tuesday. This morning, I got a call from the Recorder's office. They needed to verify my signature before they would put my ballot in to be counted. Fortunately, I was able to do that over the telephone and I am now assured that my vote will count
The lesson here is to send back your ballot immediately. If you wait too long and there is some question about your ballot, you could run out of time. The election is on November 3, 2020. Please do not wait until anywhere near that date to return your ballot. It took the Recorder's office three days to call me about my ballot. Just imagine how many more ballots they will have to assess as the election draws closer.
Also: be sure to write your telephone number on your ballot affidavit so that they can call you if necessary. I frankly don't know what happens if the Recorder's
office does not have your telephone number readily available. Perhaps they try to find you. Perhaps they toss your ballot on a pile and get to it when they can.
So, take my experience to heart and vote immediately. Do it today if you can.
