Update your voter registration!

Any voter whose name, party affiliation, or address changes must register again to update those changes.
Any voter must be registered at their correct address 29 days before any election.

If you chose to vote in person in Arizona (instead of by mail), you must present valid identification at the polling place. Typically, this will be a driver’s license or tribal enrollment card. Here is the full list of acceptable voter identification.

Sign up for the growing trend: Permanent Early Voting. Even if you like to go to the polls on Election Day, it’s useful to have your ballot mailed to you in advance. You can review it before you go to the polls, complete it at home, and drop the ballot at your polling place without waiting in line (and without presenting your identification). If you choose to vote by mail, plan to drop your ballot in the mail no later than six days before the election to assure its delivery. You can also drop it at the County Elections Office or a few other convenient locations around the county.
