Monday the last day to register for primaries

KINGMAN - With the hubbub about illegal immigration, lawsuits and summer fun, it's easy to forget that the primaries for several state and local elected offices are nearly upon us.

This year's Primary Election is Aug. 24. The last day to register to vote in the primary is Monday, July 26. Early voting for the primary starts July 29. Voters can request an early ballot online at http://legacy.co.mohave.az.us/depts/recorder/early_ballot_req.asp or through the mail by calling Voter Registration at (928) 753-0767. Voters can also request to be placed on a permanent early voter list; voters on the list get a ballot mailed to them for every election in their area.

Voters can also cast their vote at two early voting locations starting July 29 at the Mohave County Voter Registration Office, 700 W Beale Street, Kingman; the Aquatic Community Center, 100 Park Ave, Lake Havasu City; and on Aug. 9 at the Mohave County Annex Building, 1130 Hancock Rd, Bullhead City.
