- A resident of Arizona and the county listed on your registration 29 days prior to the election
- 18 years of age or older on or before November 6, 2018
- You are able to write your name or make your mark (unless prevented by disability)
You are unable to register if:

Ways to Register
Note: Registering on Service Arizona utilizes the state form and citizenship is verified through your MVD record. An Arizona driver license or non-operating ID is required to use the Servicearizona application.
- Download the State Registration form and mail to your county recorder’s office
- Download the Federal Registration form and mail to your county recorder’s office
Voter registration forms are also available at most libraries, motor vehicle division (MVD) offices, city clerk offices and public assistance agencies.
What is the difference between a State Registration Form and a Federal Registration Form?
A person must be a U.S. citizen in order to register and vote.
A person who submits valid proof of citizenship with his or her voter registration form (regardless of the type of form submitted) is entitled to vote in all federal, state, county and local elections in which he or she is eligible. The voter registration form otherwise must be sufficiently complete.
A person is not required to submit proof of citizenship with the voter registration form, but failure to do so means the person will only be eligible to vote in federal elections (known as being a “federal only” voter). A “federal only” voter will become eligible to vote a “full ballot” in all federal, state, county and local elections if he or she later provides valid proof of citizenship to the appropriate County Recorder’s office.
Permanent Early Voting List
Arizona also has a Permanent Early Voting List (PEVL), which allows a voter to automatically receive a ballot by mail for every election they are eligible to vote in. To sign up for PEVL online, you can either update your registration online through Servicearizona.com or submit a written request with your signature to your County Recorder. To check the status of your voter registration, or to confirm if you are on the Permanent Early Voting List, please utilize the link below.
Voters will receive a registration card in the mail from their County Recorder. Voters are encouraged to review the registration card to ensure the information is correct and as they intended. If you have questions or need a replacement voter registration card, please contact your County Recorder directly.
