How to Vote
In-person early Voting starts as early as 27 days before Election Day in Arizona. The earlier you go, the better!
1. POLLING STATIONS:
First, you need to find a local polling station. (Locations will be up for the next state-wide elections)
Make a plan to travel to your selected polling station on election day.
When arriving on election day, announce your name and place of residence to the election official and present one form of identification. This could be any form of identification on List #1-3 on the official "Voting in Elections" page.
Follow the poll-workers instructions and fill out your ballot!
Mail-In Voting and Absentee Ballots
WHAT IS MAIL-IN VOTING?
Mail-in Voting is a system by which American citizens can Vote in the comfort of their own homes and send in their ballots through the mail. Ballots are mailed beginning 27 days before Election Day.
There are two lists you can put yourself on:
1. Permanent Early Voting List (AEVL)
PEVL registers you as a Voter by mail. On this list, you will be given mail-in ballots for each election you are Voting in during the election year. You will have to rejoin this list for the next elections.
2. Ballot by Mail List.
On the Ballot by Mail List, you register for mail-in Voting for one specific election you choose. You must also rejoin this list for the next elections. AZ Driver’s License or Non-Operating ID number is required.
WHERE CAN I REGISTER FOR MAIL-IN VOTING?
To join the mail-in ballots list, click the "AZ Voting by Mail" button. You can request an absentee ballot (Voting by mail at a time that suits you rather than receiving your ballot in the mail on a certain day) by clicking the "Absentee Ballot" button.
Due to misinformation efforts, people may be concerned about sharing their personal information with the government or concerned that their Vote will be mishandled. There is absolutely NO widespread evidence of Voter fraud or security. The last Presidential election was in fact quoted by Homeland Security Director Chris Krebs as the "most secure in history."
Furthermore, there are misinformation campaigns that claim that law enforcement will "monitor" the vote. This is a false claim used for Voter suppression and Intimidation. Remember, it is YOUR right to Vote.
