Voter Eligibility Information

To vote in Arizona, you must be a citizen of the United States and a resident of an Arizona county. A voter must be 18 years or older on or before Election Day.

To be eligible to vote in an election one must register at least 29 days prior to the election. Individuals can register online, in person at the county recorder’s office, or by mail.

Individuals must provide proof of citizenship when registering if they wish to vote in state and local elections. Acceptable forms of documentation include birth certificates, passports, and U.S. naturalization documents. On June 4, 2018, Secretary of State Michele Reagan (R) announced that proof of citizenship would not be required of individuals who have already provided such proof to the state department of motor vehicles. Reagan also announced that the state would allow individuals who registered without providing proof of citizenship to cast ballots in federal elections (though not in state or local elections).

These are the acceptable forms of voter ID in Arizona.
