Voter Registration in Arizona
Arizona's voting requirements are similar to those of every other state in the union. You must:
- Be a U.S. citizen
- Be a resident of Arizona
- Be at least 18 years of age by the next general election
- Not be a convicted felon, unless your civil rights have been restored
- Not be judged incompetent under AZ statutes
Registering to vote is simple if you use the online EZ Voter Registration service. However, you must have a valid digital signature on file with Arizona's MVD to do so (digital signatures are usually recorded when you apply for an Arizona driver license or identification card).
After you register, your electronic application will be transferred from Arizona's MVD to the county recorder by the Secretary of State. Once your application is processed by the county recorder, you will receive a voter registration card in the mail within six weeks.
You do not need to re-register to vote before each election, as your information will remain on file until you change it. However, if you change your address or realign your party affiliation, you will need to register again.
To be eligible to vote in an upcoming election, your voter registration must be completed at least 29 days before the election.
