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 October 28th, 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 November 8th 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 November 8th - your ballot will not count.

You may vote by mail for any reason

You don’t need an excuse to request an absentee ballot. You can vote by mail for any reason.

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.

Use The Right Form of ID

If voting by mail, no ID is required, but the signature must match the voter registration form on file. Voters must show a valid photo ID when voting in person. Info here on what qualifies.
