How Vote By Mail Works 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 July 22nd, 11 days before Election Day, at 5 p.m.

Step 2: Complete and return your ballot ASAP.

  • Return in person to your county election office, county designated drop box, early voting site, or polling place by 7 p.m. on Election Day.
  • Return by mail to your county election office so that it is received by Aug. 2nd at 7 p.m. We recommend mailing your ballot at least two weeks before as the post office is not always reliable.  The best intentions or postmark will not matter if your ballot is received after Aug. 2nd - your ballot will not count.

Where to Sign Your Ballot

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.

How You Can Return Your Mail-in Ballot

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.

Can Someone Else Return Your Ballot For You?

Your family member, household member or a caregiver.

Haven't used your ballot?

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.

Opportunities to Fix Challenges to Your 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.

Voter ID

Do Voters Need ID?

Arizona voters must show ID at the polls to vote.

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.

Photo ID with name and address of the elector; such as:

  • Valid Arizona driver’s license
  • Valid Arizona non-operating ID license
  • Tribal enrollment card or other form of tribal ID
  • Valid United States federal, state, or local government-issued identification

*An identification is “valid” unless it can be determined on its face that it has expired.

OR: Two (2) forms of non-photo ID that bear the name and address of the elector, such as:

  • Utility bill of the elector that is dated within 90 days of the date of the election. A utility bill may be for electric, gas, water, solid waste, sewer, telephone, cellular phone, or cable television
  • Bank or credit union statement that is dated within 90 days of the date of the election
  • Valid Arizona Vehicle Registration or insurance card
  • Tribal ID
  • Property tax statement of the elector’s residence
  • Recorder’s Certificate
  • Valid United States federal, state, or local government-issued identification, including a voter registration card issued by the County Recorder
  • Any mailing to the elector marked “Official Election Material”
  • Federal, state, or local ID

Preregister

Some states have laws that specifically allow citizens to preregister at a certain age while others allow registration as long as you’re 18 by the next election. Preregistration means you’ll be automatically registered to vote on your 18th birthday without taking any additional steps.

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!

You can not vote in the Arizona primaries if you are 17 by the next election.
