Release: Two Months Until Election Day, Arizona Democrats Educate The Electorate

PHOENIX – Today marks two months from Election Day. As part of the Arizona Democratic Party’s ongoing effort to ensure that Arizonans are aware of the several voting options available to them, we have listed important voting information here:

REGISTERING TO VOTE FOR THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION:

October 5th is the Voter Registration Deadline. Arizonans can register or check their registration status at iwillvote.com

WHEN DO BALLOTS ARRIVE?

October 7 is the first day for counties to mail ballots to voters. It is also the first day of in-person early voting.

SIGNING UP FOR THE PERMANENT EARLY VOTING LIST:

October 23 is the last day to request a ballot-by-mail or sign up for the Permanent Early Voting List (PEVL). Voters can sign up here.

WHEN TO SEND YOUR BALLOT:

October 27th is the last recommended deadline to mail back your ballot. Your ballot-by-mail must be received by county election officials by 7:00 p.m. on Election Day. Voters have several options to return your ballot-by-mail: drop it off at a polling location before Election Day; return it by mail; or bring it to a polling location on Election Day.

Given the current delays in mail, the Arizona Democratic Party strongly recommends that voters mail their ballot back at least 7 days before the election — Tuesday, October 27th. After October 27, voters should take their ballot to any ballot drop-off location or voting location in their county by 7:00 p.m. on Election Day.

TRACK YOUR BALLOT:

Voters may track the status of their ballot at My.Arizona.Vote to confirm that it was received and counted. If they live in Pima County or Maricopa County, check with your county election officials for status updates.

WHAT TO BRING TO THE POLLS:

Every qualified elector is required to show proof of identity at the polling place before receiving a ballot. To find out what qualifies as an acceptable form of identification in Arizona click here.

Arizona Democratic Party spokesman Matt Grodsky issued the following: 

“There are 61 days to go until the most important election of our lifetimes. Arizona Democrats are doing everything we can to inform voters about the options available to them during these unprecedented times. Voters should sign up for PEVL, mail-in their ballots, drop off their ballots at any of their county’s early voting locations, or drop it off at polling locations on Election Day. Voters are encouraged to visit our website to learn more about voting early.”
