PHOENIX – Today marks one month away from the Permanent Early Voting List (PEVL) sign up deadline. PEVL is the list of voters who can vote by mail. More than 80 percent of Arizona voters are already signed up. Everyone on PEVL gets a ballot in the mail a few weeks before Election Day starting on October 7th, and voters can send it back in a prepaid envelope.
Signing up for the Permanent Early Voting List means voters can always stick their ballot in the mailbox, though we recommend doing so by October 27th to make sure it gets in on time. Voters can also take the ballot to any voting location in their county and drop it off; there’s no need to stand in line or show ID and they can still get an “I Voted” sticker. Finally, voters can place their ballot in a designated dropbox.
Voters on the PEVL list can always still choose to vote in-person if they prefer. Voters can find their closest voting location by visiting iwillvote.com/az
To get a ballot-by-mail for the upcoming election, voters must sign up by October 23 at 5:00 pm but Arizona Democrats advise that voters do this much earlier. Voters can also request a one-time mail ballot in this election.

If a voter does not have an Arizona driver’s license and can’t sign up for PEVL online, you need to print out a form and send it to your County Recorder. More information here: https://azdem.org/pevl/
