How to Register to Vote 


1. Find Out if You’re Eligible to Vote in Arizona 

To qualify for voter registration in Arizona, you must be all of the following:

  • A U.S. citizen. 
  • A resident of the Arizona county listed on your registration. 
  • 18-years-old on or before the date of the next general election.
  •  Not declared "incompetent" by a court. 
  • Not currently disqualified from voting due to felony convictions. (If you have been convicted of a felony in Arizona, find out if your voting rights will be restored automatically or if you must apply to have them restored).

2. Find Your Registration Deadline 

In the state of Arizona, you must register 29 days before election day. Since you are not allowed to register at your polling place on the day of the election, it is crucial to know the registration deadlines for upcoming elections. 

The deadline for registration is the same no matter if you register by mail, online, or in-person. 

The 2024 voter registration deadlines in Arizona are: : 

  • February 12, 2024 (last day to register for the March 12th Election)
