The state’s Aug. 2 primary election is just a few weeks away, and early ballots are now arriving. But in Pinal County, thousands of those ballots contain significant errors.

The county says the issues are related to missing or inaccurate city and town contests, with some ballots featuring only state and federal races.

About 63,000 ballots sent to voters in Apache Junction, Queen Creek, Casa Grande, Eloy, Mammoth, Maricopa, and Superior are affected.

The county is planning to send out supplementary ballots that include municipal contests, and is telling voters to use the original ballots they’ve been sent to vote in federal, state, and legislative races.

The county says any votes cast for the municipal races on the erroneous ballots will not be counted. Voters with questions are advised to contact the Citizen Contact Center by phone or email.
