  • Can I register the same day I want to vote?

    Sadly, no. So do it now! Then reward yourself with a cookie.

  • Do I have to be registered as a Democrat or Republican to vote in my primary?

    It depends. If you're unaffiliated, you can vote in the partisan primary of your choice. If you're already affiliated with a political party, you can only vote in that party's primary.

  • Can I vote by mail?

    Yes! As long as you're registered, you can request to have your ballot mailed to you, you just have to do that by July 22ndth. Then, you can fill it out and mail it back by August 2nd. This is called an absentee ballot. You can get your absentee ballot here.

  • Can I vote early?

    Yes! You can vote early between July 6th - July 29th.

  • Do I need an ID?

    Yes, yes you do. An Arizona driver’s license or state ID, a Tribal ID, or ID issued by a government all work. If you don’t have an ID, you can bring two of the following: a utility bill, recent bank statement, a vehicle registration or insurance card, a property tax statement, a recorder’s certificate, a voter registration card, or any mail labeled “official election material” which is fancy.

What's new in arizona voting since 2020

In 2021, Arizona passed 14 new election laws. The most important new law to be aware of made changes to the Permanent Early Voting List, which is now called the Active Early Voting List. The new law allows the state to remove voters from the list if they do not vote early in two consecutive elections. If you'd like to vote early, make sure to request a ballot or check that your name is still on the Active Early Voting List
