Arizona Voter Registration Laws

The ability to vote in the state of Arizona is governed by A.R.S. 16-101. Every Arizona resident is qualified to register to vote if:

  • They are a citizen of the United States as proven by:
    • Driver license.
    • United States birth certificate.
    • United States passport.
    • United States naturalization documents.
    • Documents pursuant to the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986.
    • Tribal enrollment number, card number, and Indian affairs card number.
  • They are at least 18 years old by the date of the next election.
  • They are a resident of the state of Arizona at least 29 days prior to the election date.
  • They are able to write their name or make their resident’s mark, unless prevented so by physical disability.
  • They have not been convicted of treason or felony, unless their civil rights have been restored.
  • They have not been adjudicated as an incapacitated person.

How Can I Register to Vote?

Most Arizona residents will find it easiest to register to vote online through the Service Arizona EZ Voter Registration through the Motor Vehicle Division.

If that is not an option, prospective voters may print, fill out, and mail the Arizona Voter Registration Form to their county recorder’s office. Alternatively, they may walk into their county recorder’s office to fill out the registration form in person.

What is the Voter Registration Deadline?

The voter registration deadline for each election is 29 days prior to the specific election. If this date happens to fall on a weekend or state holiday, the deadline will be extended to the next business day. For more information, visit the Secretary of State’s elections page.
