More than 1.8 million Maricopa County voters should be on the lookout for yellow envelopes in the mail with ballots for Nov. 5 elections.

Local elections are being held in 29 jurisdictions throughout the county. The majority of those elections are being held by school districts asking voters to approve various bonds and overrides to boost funding. 

Unlike traditional primary and general elections, Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes announced that the upcoming local elections are being held entirely by mail. That means all voters, not just those signed up for Arizona's Permanent Early Voting List, will receive a ballot by mail.

Fontes announced that ballots were mailed on Wednesday and should arrive in the next few days. Voters can send their ballots back by mail, drop them off at locations throughout the county, or visit a ballot replacement center. 

If you return your ballot by mail, make sure it's postmarked no later than Oct. 30 to ensure it's delivered in time to count.
