COTTONWOOD – Even though county election staff members have successfully encouraged a great deal of early voting, there still will be many Verde Valley residents voting in Tuesday’s Arizona Primary in person.

Here are some important things to know about voting Tuesday.

All voting locations will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. All registered voters are eligible to vote in the 2020 primary election, regardless of party registration, and can vote at any location within their county.

Note that Sedona-area voters must know if they live in Coconino or Yavapai counties.

Voters must bring identification with them to polling locations. If you bring one of the acceptable forms of photo ID, that is the only identification you’ll need.

Acceptable photos IDs include a valid Arizona driver license, a valid Arizona non-operating identification card, a tribal enrollment card or other form of tribal identification or a valid U.S. federal, state- or local-government-issued photo ID.

Identification that doesn’t have a photo, but that bears the name and address or the voter, are acceptable, but two forms are required. Search online for the Arizona Voters Education guide to find the list of acceptable documents, which includes your county’s voter ID card.

Call 928-771-3248 or visit for information.

Voters needing special accommodations should call 928-771-3248 or email with concerns.

Only one candidate for a Verde Valley office has withdrawn. That’s Town of Jerome two-year council member candidate Nikki Check.

There are some qualified write-in candidates. They are, by office, Bo Garcia (U.S. Senate, Democratic Party nomination), Sean Lyons (U.S. Senate, Republican Party nomination), Barry Hess and Alan White (U.S. Senate, Libertarian Party nomination), Gilbert Carillo (State Senate, District 1) James O’Connor (Corporation Commission), Jesse Dowling (Cottonwood City Council, four-year term only), Michael Werner (Sedona mayor) and Ed Larrieu (Sedona City Council, four-year term only).
