Mail-In Ballots (Phoenix)
If you listened to the recording from the Maricopa County Recorder and Elections Department Office, you will be advised that ballots were delivered to the post office on October 12. If you haven't gotten your ballot yet, you might be a bit panicked. If you're voting for Donald Trump, you can assume the system is rigged and just stop reading now. If you call 602-506-1511, you might get an "all circuits are busy" greeting, in which even you should hang up. Apparently, a number of people are trying to get through. If you keep trying, you should get through and while the announced hold-time of 1 minute might not be accurate, your should quickly get through to a very nice clerk. If you have your Voter ID number, that will speed things up, but if you know your full name, address, and date of birth, that will suffice. The clerk will be able to tell you the exact day your ballot was mailed, which actually might have been October 17 and not October 12.
