As if elections weren’t complicated enough, this year’s redistricting on the federal, state and county levels is causing even more people’s heads to spin.

While attending a candidate forum in Cottonwood on Saturday, Aug. 11, a woman stood up during the Democratic state Legislature forum simply to find out if these were in fact candidates she would be choosing from.

Larson Newspapers Managing Editor Trista Steers MacVittieThe process of redistricting seemed to confuse even those involved, so it’s no wonder many residents sit scratching their heads in the wake of the primary election Tuesday, Aug. 28.

To clear it up for those who continue to struggle, here is the Larson Newspapers guide to voting in your new districts.

If you live in Cottonwood, Clarkdale, Jerome or Verde Villages:

■ Yavapai County District 3

■ Arizona Legislative District 6

■ U.S. Congressional District 4

If you live in Cornville:

■ Yavapai County District 2

■ Arizona Legislative District 6

■ U.S. Congressional District 4

If you live in Camp Verde, the Rimrock area or any other communities along Interstate 17:

■ Yavapai County District 2

■ Arizona Legislative District 6

■ U.S. Congressional District 1

If you live in the Yavapai County portion of Sedona or the Village of Oak Creek:

■ Yavapai County District 3

■ Arizona Legislative District 6

■ U.S. Congressional District 1

If you live in the Coconino County portion of Sedona:

■ Coconino County District 3

■ Arizona Legislative District 6

■ U.S. Congressional District 1

If you still can’t figure it out, visit either Yavapai or Coconino counties websites, or the Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission’s website.

Early ballots already went out for the primary election, and polling on election day will be held at vote centers across the Verde Valley.

Remember, regardless of your party affiliation, you can vote in the primary election.

Democrats, Republicans and Libertarians vote for their parties’ candidates.

Anyone not registered to any of these parties can choose between the Democratic, Republican, Green or American Select ballots.
