The general election is underway and the Gila River Arena and State Farm Stadium are doing their part to assist as a designated voting center and ballot drop off site.
Gila River Arena Voting Center
Gila River Arena is open both for ballot drop off and also as both an early voting center and election day voting.
**I went in person this morning (Monday, Nov. 2) to Gila River Arena. They open the doors at 9 am for early voting (6 AM on Election Day), so I was there at 8:20 am, fully anticipating a line already formed. However, I was the first one there! By the time the doors opened at 9 am, there were maybe 15 of us- and when I left 20 minutes later, there was no line at all! It was easy to park, they were very organized, and it was the fastest I have ever voted in person! It may pick up tomorrow, but it was not the crazy lines I expected, for what its worth!**
Gila River Arena will provide a safe and secure environment for any and all Maricopa County voters to vote or drop off their ballots. The arena will be a voting center from Wednesday, October 28 through Tuesday, November 3, and parking will be free for all Maricopa County voters.Vote at Gila River Arena Information
