Election 101

It is important to be civically engaged and we want to help you!

Here are some important links to help you register to vote, sign up for the early voting list, and discover who represents you in the Legislature:

Register to vote

Vote Early

Voting early is a great way to vote. Here’s why:

  • It is convenient because you receive the ballot in the mail and can vote in the comfort of your own home.
  • You can take your time and do your research around the issues and the candidates before you vote.
  • You can mail in your ballot instead of having to go to the polls.
Voting on Election Day

Be sure to show up at your correct polling place on Election Day. You can find your polling place here.

Remember to bring ID. Your Arizona driver’s license is a reliable form of ID, but if you don’t have one, you can find information on other acceptable forms of ID here.

Provisional Ballot

Taking the above steps should ensure that you don’t have to vote on a provisional ballot. Provisional ballots should be avoided if possible, since they require more scrutiny before being counted. If you’re sure of your eligibility to vote but aren’t on the voter rolls when you show up on Election Day, you should request a provisional ballot instead of turning away without voting. A provisional ballot is definitely better than no ballot, and it will include detailed steps on how to use it. Follow the steps carefully, since provisional ballots are the most likely to be rejected during a ballot count.

Reporting Voter Intimidation

If you witness or experience threats or harassment when trying to vote — including aggressive questioning about citizenship or other qualifications for voting — or if you believe that an organization is providing misleading or incorrect information about polling places, election dates, or other information voters need to cast their ballots successfully, report the issue to one of the following hotlines:
