FAQ's

Am I registered to vote in Arizona?

If you have an Arizona Drivers’ license or non-driver ID, check here.

If you do not have an Arizona ID, you can call your county recorder office (click here).

Can Independent voters vote in the primary election?

Yes. Arizona has an Open Primary and voters that are not registered with a recognized political party (Independents) are able to request a partisan ballot. Who gets which ballot in a primary election?

Democratic Voter → Democratic Party Ballot
Green Voter → Green Party Ballot
Libertarian Voter → Libertarian Party Ballot
Republican Voter → Republican Party Ballot
Independent Voter → Democratic OR Green OR Republican Party Ballot (may only choose one)*

*The Libertarian Party has a closed primary. Independent voters who vote by mail must contact their County Recorder to designate which partisan ballot they want mailed to them. Local, non-partisan ballots may be available. Check with your county recorder’s office (click here).

Earliest request can be made 93 days before the election, call the county recorder’s office (5/3/20). Last day to request is the Wednesday before the election (7/29/20)

Can Independent voters vote early in the primary?

Absolutely. If you are registered with a political party and on the Permanent Early Voting List (PEVL), you will automatically receive a ballot in your mailbox. Independent voters, that are on PEVL, must contact their County Recorder to designate which partisan ballot (or potentially a non-partisan ballot if available) they would like to receive. Voters not on PEVL may make a one-time early ballot request or sign up for the Permanent Early Voting List, by contacting their county recorder’s office (click here).

I recently moved. How do I update my voter registration?

There are at least three ways:

1. If you have an Arizona Drivers’ license or non-driver ID, change your address here.

2. If you do not have an Arizona ID, you can go to the county recorder office. If you moved from one county to another county, go to the office in the new county (click here).

3. If you do not have an Arizona ID, you can also request that the county recorder mail you a paper form. Forms are also found at all local libraries.

I haven’t voted in several years. Do I need to re-register.

If you’ve lived at the same residence all this time, you do not need to re-register. Voter registration does not expire. If you haven’t voted in many years, it’s possible you are treated as “inactive” within the elections records, but you can still vote in-person without re-registering.

Can I vote by mail?

Yes! Arizona has something called the Permanent Early Voting List (PEVL). If you are on the PEVL list, it means that you will be mailed a ballot automatically a few weeks before the election. If you don’t think you are already on the PEVL list, you can sign up for it anytime here. Currently, more than 80% of Arizona voters are signed up for PEVL!

I don’t have an Arizona form of ID. Can I register to vote in Arizona?

Yes! If you are otherwise eligible to vote, you can register in Arizona without having an Arizona ID. But it does require a bit more documentation. For example, you can provide a copy of a birth certificate or a copy of the relevant page of your passport.

If you were registered previously in the same county, you probably won’t need to provide any of these forms of ID. Just update your information here, or in person.

I live in Arizona only part of the year. Can I vote in Arizona?

In Arizona, you can register to vote if you have “actual physical presence” in Arizona and “an intent to remain” here. For example, if you live in Arizona for large parts of each year and you plan to continue doing that indefinitely. Arizona law doesn’t say how many months each year you must live here.

Registering to vote in Arizona does not necessarily mean that you are a “resident” of Arizona for all things. However, it does mean that you are an Arizona resident for car registration and drivers’ license purposes. Under Arizona law, “residency” for voting and for income tax purposes are different. The other state will likely have its own rules about all this.

And, you cannot be registered to vote in two states at the same time!

I have a past felony on my record. Can I vote in Arizona?

Maybe.

In Arizona, a felony conviction affects your ability to vote. If you have only one felony conviction in your past, you should have had your civil rights restored automatically after you completed probation or received a final discharge from prison. However, frequently a person’s civil rights are not automatically restored even though they should have been, so it is important to double-check the court file.

If you have more than one felony conviction, you cannot vote until an Arizona judge restores your civil rights. In this instance, you can apply for set aside and restoration two years after being discharged from prison.

If you were arrested for a felony, that does not necessarily mean you were convicted of a felony. Sometimes, charges are dropped or the attorneys negotiate a lower-level misdemeanor crime. If you are unsure whether you were convicted of a felony, it is important to double-check the court file.

I am currently 17 years old. When can I register to vote?

Even if you are not yet 18, you may still be able to register to vote now. You can register now if you will turn 18 before November 5, 2020.
