Early Ballot Recap With 8 Days to Go


Phoenix, AZ (July 25th, 2022) With one full week of early voting remaining in Arizona’s primary early voting period, more than half a million ballots have been returned in the Republican and Democratic Primaries as of
Friday, July 22 nd.

On the Republican side, 244,552 ballots have been returned out of the 1,163,033 requested for a 21% return rate. This puts the GOP well behind its 27.7% return rate from 2018 and 30.6% rate in 2020.

For the Democratic Party, there have been 1,139,009 requests and 277,731 returns, giving them a return rate of 23.5%. The total number of Democratic ballots is well above the number submitted in 2018 but due to a large increase in the number of requests this year, return rate is slightly down from 2018’s 25.5% and 2020’s 31.1%.

Pima County leads the state in return rate for both parties, with Maricopa, Pinal, Cochise, and La Paz also having strong showings so far. This could change as some traditionally high turnout counties like Yavapai and Mohave process more returns as the week goes on.
