Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA)

The Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA) ensures that U.S. citizens who are service members, their eligible family members or overseas citizens can vote in their home states. This guide has been mailed to every Arizona Military and Overseas voter.

If you have family or friends that are serving in the military or residing out of the country, please help us reach them. Share this web page with them so they can learn about the candidates and exercise their right to vote.


Frequently Asked Questions

What information is contained in the guide?
Voters can access information on the electoral process, including how to obtain their ballot and important deadlines, and statements, photos and contact information for candidates running for statewide and legislative office.

Why is the guide printed in Spanish?
President Lyndon Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act into law on August 6, 1965. The Act applied a nationwide prohibition against the denial or abridgment of the right to vote based on literacy tests and poll taxes.

In 1975, Congress amended the Voting Rights Act of 1965 by adding Section 203, the language minority provisions. The amendment requires that “when a covered state of political subdivision provides registration or voting notices, forms, instructions, assistance, or other materials of information relating to the electoral process, including ballots, it shall provide them in the language of the applicable minority group as well as in the English language.” For Arizona, the language of the applicable minority group is Spanish.

For more information, please contact the United State Department of Justice Civil Rights Division, Voting Section at 800-253-3931 or voting.section@usdoj.gov

Why aren't all of the candidates listed on my ballot printed in the guide?
The Citizens Clean Elections Commission only prints statements for candidates that run for statewide or legislative offices.
