Sept. 25 is Nat'l Voter Registration Day: Sign up before Oct. 9 deadline in Az

Tuesday is National Voter Registration Day, a country-wide effort to encourage participation in this year's elections. Signing up online or checking that your address is current is easy in Arizona. Do it before the Oct. 9 deadline.

Midnight on Oct. 9, 2018, is the deadline to register to vote in Arizona's election for U.S. Senate, congressional, governor and other 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 November general election in Arizona is October 9. 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 Oct. 9 in order to cast a ballot in the Nov. 8, 2018 election. Officials will start mailing out early ballots after the deadline.

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.

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

National Voter Registration Day

The effort, held on the fourth Tuesday of September, is endorsed by the National Association of Secretaries of State and the National Association of State Election Directors.

Volunteers and organizations will "hit the streets" to create awareness of voter registration deadlines, and provide opportunities for voters to sign up and check their current status, organizers said.

In 2016, more than 750,000 voters took part in Voter Registration Day efforts to sign up to cast ballots, organizers said.
