Registration Deadline

  • Postmarked by: 29 days before Election Day.

Felony Information

Under Arizona law, if you've been convicted of a single felony for the first time, you may register and vote when you are unconditionally discharged from probation or imprisonment, which includes paying any fine or restitution you owe. If you've been convicted of more than one felony, you must petition the court that sentenced you to have your rights restored. If you have been convicted for more than one felony and were only subject to probation, you can immediately petition the court after you've been unconditionally discharged from your probation. If you have been imprisoned, however, you must wait 2 years after you've been unconditionally discharged from your sentence, which also includes probation and payment of any fines or restitution. Under all circumstances, you must submit a new voter registration form even if you were registered prior to your felony conviction. For more information, contact the Arizona Secretary of State.

Information for Students

  • You must be a resident of the state in which you register and vote. If you're a student from Arizona who attends school in another state, you may need to determine whether you're an Arizona resident or a resident of the state where you attend school. The important thing to keep in mind is that you can only cast your vote in one state.
  • Here's what Arizona says about residency: Under Arizona law, a "resident" is a person who has actual physical presence in the state and intends to remain there. You must have been a resident for at least 29 days before the election, and you can have only one residence.
  • If you determine you're an Arizona resident, but will not be present in this state or will be away from your home district on Election Day, be sure to check the absentee ballot application requirements and deadlines. In addition, Arizona residents who attend school in-state, but in a different election district, may be eligible to register and vote in the election district where they live while attending school.
  • To determine whether you're a resident of a different state where you attend school, be sure to check that state's residency requirements.

Identification Information

Arizona says that you need to bring ONE of the following forms of identification:
  • Identification that bears your name, address, and photograph; or
  • Two different forms of identification that bear your name and address; or
  • One form of acceptable photo identification with one form of non-photo identification that bears your name and address
