PHOENIX (AP) -- Time is running out to request an early ballot for next month's general election ballot.

The Arizona Secretary of State's office says voters who want to request an early ballot for the general election must act by 5 p.m. Friday - the last day that an early ballot request made to a voter's county recorder's office can be honored.

Completed ballots should be signed, sealed and mailed by next Thursday in order to arrive in time to be counted in the Nov. 4 election. After that they should be dropped off at a polling place.

Voters who don't request an early ballot can still vote early by contacting their county recorder to find early voting locations. And ballots can be cast at normal voting locations on Election Day.
