This is a big year for Arizona and you have some elections that are heating wayyyyy up. But it’s a dry heat. Here’s everything you need to know to be a voter in the Copper State this year.BE A VOTER

SINCE YOU LAST VOTED…
Since 2020, it’s become harder to cast your ballot in Arizona. Here are the changes you need to pay attention to:
When registering to vote…
- You must now include some proof of citizenship on your registration form.
When making a plan to vote…
- Check that your registration is still valid. A new 2022 law allows county recorders to remove a voter from their lists if they receive information suggesting that voter is ineligible.
- The Permanent Early Voting List has become the “Active Early Voting List”, which means that you can be removed from the list of voters receiving early ballots if you don’t vote early in two consecutive election cycles. You should check that your name is on the Active Early Voting List or otherwise request an early ballot!
When casting your ballot…
- If voting by mail, your envelope cannot reveal your political party affiliation.
- Automatic voter registration is banned, so make sure that the first-time voters in your life know how to register.
- There’s a ballot measure happening this November that would make voting much harder in the future. It would require DOBs and voter IDs for mail-in ballots, and get rid of alternatives to photo IDs for those voting in-person. Don’t let unnecessary voting requirements hurt our democracy!
Vote Save the Senate Fund
If we can win 52 Senate seats in 2022, Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema’s refusal to change the filibuster won’t matter. We can elect a Democratic majority that takes decisive action on raising the minimum wage, forgiving student debt, fighting climate change, protecting reproductive freedom, and more. We need to protect the four most vulnerable Democratic incumbents in purple states and support challengers in winnable states. You can start today by donating here to directly support eight of the most competitive Senate races of 2022.
