Request and track
Notice: Mail-in voting is a convenient and safe way to vote, but your ballot might not count if it’s submitted late or with errors. So follow the directions below on how to vote early or absentee and make your vote count in Arizona.
Voting by mail is a two step process in Arizona.
Step 1: Request your ballot NOW. The deadline for your application to be received is October 28th, 11 days before Election Day, at 5 p.m.
Step 2: Complete and return your ballot ASAP.
Remember to sign your return ballot.
After completing your ballot, put it into the return envelope provided by the state. Sign the early ballot affidavit on the return envelope.
Be sure that your signature matches your signature on file with the state! If you registered online or at the DMV, check the signature on your license. If the signature does not match, your ballot could be tossed and will not count.
If you return your ballot by mail, your postage is prepaid. You can also return your ballot via commercial delivery services, such as FedEx or UPS (at your expense).
You can also drop off your ballot in person at your local elections office, drop box, early voting locations, or polling place.
Your family member, household member or a caregiver.
If you decide to vote in person rather than use your mail-in ballot, go to your polling place and cast your vote. You will likely be asked to cast a provisional ballot.
Arizona does offer voters a chance to address challenges to their ballot.
Your state has a cure period, which means you can “cure” a challenge to the signature on your ballot if it was done incorrectly. You may cure your ballot until the 5th business day after the election to cure a mismatched signature. If a signature is missing, you have until the end of Election Day to cure your ballot.
You may get a call from a number you do not recognize with a notification that you need to cure your ballot. Be sure to pick up so that you don’t miss that chance to have your vote counted.

All of the below must be current or no expiration date; name and address that reasonably match voter’s registration form; if different address or military ID/passport do not have address, use item from 2nd list with correct address.

In Arizona, you can preregister to vote if you are 18 by the next election. Register to vote today!
Some states even let you vote in their primaries at 17 if you’ll be 18 by the general election so you can participate in the whole process!
