…and while it is a primary election, all voters, even unaffiliated ones, can, and *should* participate…
From an email from the City of Mesa –
Early voting for the Aug. 30 Arizona Primary Election began on Aug. 3 and ends on Aug. 26.
Voters on the Permanent Early Voting List and voters wishing to receive an early ballot who are not registered with a declared political party must contact Maricopa County Elections at (602) 506-1511 to request which ballot they want to receive (Republican, Democrat, Green or non-partisan if it is a ballot for [non-partisan] candidates only). Voters, not registered with a party, who plan on going to the polls to vote can request the ballot they want upon arrival at the polling site.
While this email focused only on Maricopa County (home county of Mesa), the procedure is the same in other counties, except election questions should be directed to the relevant county’s elections department.

Pinal County’s early voting sites are the offices of the Pinal County Recorder; the list of those offices is here.
