Monday deadline to register to vote in Arizona primary

Monday at midnight is the deadline to register to vote in Arizona's primary election for Senate, congressional, state and local candidates. You can register online or check your current registration at ServiceArizona.com.

To be eligible, voters in each jurisdiction must be registered before the deadline.

How to register

The deadline to register to vote, or update your registration, for the August primary election in Arizona is July 30. If you've moved, changed your name, or want to change political parties, you must complete a new voter registration form. To register, you must be a U.S. citizen, a resident of Arizona and at least 18 years old at the time of the election.

You must register for the first time in the state — or update your address or party preference, if applicable— by midnight Monday in order to cast a ballot in the Aug. 28, 2018 primary. Officials will start mailing out early ballots this week.

You can register online or check your current registration at ServiceArizona.com. For Pima County voters, check your address at the Pima County Recorder's website, which will display your full address, unlike the partial one shown by the state website.

If you've moved, changed your name, or want to change political parties, you must complete a new voter registration form.

And remember, Arizona has semi-open primaries. Registered party members must stick with their own faction, but non-party voters can pick a ballot to cast in August. It's only the presidential preference election that picks party convention delegates that is closed.

You can register online in English and Spanish, or fill out a registration form and mail it to the Recorder's Office, postmarked no later than midnight, July 30. To register, you must be a U.S. citizen, a resident of Arizona and at least 18 years old at the time of the election.

If you have an Arizona drivers license issued after Oct. 1, 1996, that serves as proof of citizenship under state requirements.

Call the office of Pima County Recorder F. Ann Rodriguez at 724-4330 if you have questions.
