Arizona Primary Ballots Mailed Out – Vote and Mail ASAP and Follow Your Ballot

The Arizona Primary Election is technically on July 30th. We all know that the election is not on July 30th but rather is almost a month in duration. Ballots for the 80-90% of Arizona voters were mailed out on July 3rd and you have or will shortly have your ballot in the mail. The time to complete your ballot is NOW, not later and certainly not on election ‘day’. The time to mail in your completed ballot is NOW, not later.

In the past Arizona voters had confidence in the model mail-in voting system that was efficient and seemingly uncorrupted. The Covid-induced election manipulations, a rabidly partisan Maricopa County Recorder named Adrian Fontes (now the rabidly partisan Secretary of State!!) followed by the incompetent Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer, and the enormous flood of illegal aliens throughout our state and America make our state’s election system highly suspect. We must use the system as it is currently constructed but in a way that actually approaches what the will of Arizona voters actually is. We cannot have any confidence in votes cast on ‘election day’ given the dysfunction seen in Maricopa County (where over 60% of AZ votes are cast) and elsewhere in 2020 and especially in 2022 making us the laughing stock of the nation for weeks and leaving significant numbers of voters (especially from GOP areas) disenfranchised.

Remember – the election has everything to do with the number of ballots actually counted, not the votes cast. All mail-in voters in Arizona (the vast majority of voters) should fill in their ballot and mail it at their post office as soon as possible after receipt. The left floods the system early on with mail-in ballots, the Republican voters tend to vote on election day believing their vote will be counted. No more – mail in your vote right away and then follow the ballot for certainty it is received, signature verified and actually counted (see below).


Bringing your mail-in ballot to a polling station for deposit on election day is unquestionably the most stupid way to cast your vote. It will not be counted on election day and may not be counted at all. It is a failure of your voting privilege and responsibility. We strongly recommend never depositing your mail-in ballot at a drop box. Chain-of-custody issues will continue into the future and were clearly shown to be a factor in 2020 throughout America with the increasing use of mail-in voting ramped up during the Covid era and continuing to the present election.

The following is the way you ‘Follow Your Ballot’. Please study and engage the process. You should be assured that your ballot has been received, verified and counted after you vote. As important as this is for the Arizona Primary this month, it is critical for the November election to determine the next U.S. President and our Arizona federal and state legislators:

The Prickly Pear’s TAKE ACTION focus this year is to help achieve a winning 2024 national and state November 5th election with the removal of the Biden/Obama leftist executive branch disaster, win one U.S. Senate seat, maintain and win strong majorities in all Arizona state offices on the ballot and to insure that unrestricted abortion is not constitutionally embedded in our laws and culture.
