© Judy Hedding
You must be registered to vote in Arizona to vote in any city, county, or state election. There are several ways to register to vote.
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: Not Too Long

Here's How:

  1. You must be a citizen of the United States and 18 years of age or older preceding the next general election.
  2. You must be a resident of Arizona 29 days preceding the next general election.
  3. You must not have been convicted of a felony or treason, or if so, your civil rights must have been restored. You must not have been declared incompetent by a court.
  4. Proposition 200, passed by the voters of Arizona at the 2004 General Election requires that proof of citizenship must be submitted with all new voter registration forms. One of the items listed here is all you need to fulfill this requirement.
  5. If you meet the requirements in steps 1-4, there are four ways you can register to vote: print a form, request a form, pick up a form, or register online.
  6. You can print a voter registration form from your computer.
  7. Mail the completed form to: Maricopa County Recorder, 111 S. 3rd Avenue, STE 102, Phoenix, AZ 85003-2294.
  8. You can have a voter registration form mailed to you by calling 602-506-1511, T.D.D. 602-506-2348.
  9. You can obtain voter registration forms from any Elections office in Maricopa County, or from a City or Town Clerk's office.
  10. You can also obtain voter registration forms from libraries throughout Maricopa County, at some banks, at some grocery stores and at U. S. Post Offices.
  11. If you have an Arizona driver license or official nonoperating identification license, you can register to vote online
  12. If you are registered to vote in Arizona, you must register again if you moved from one residence to another, if you have changed your name or if you want to change political parties.

Tips:

  3. You should receive a voter registration card in the mail after your application has been processed.
  4. Prior to an election, you will receive information in the mail directing you where to go to vote in that upcoming election.
