    To vote by mail in Arizona, sign up for a one-time mail ballot or sign up for the Permanent Early Voting list online or by mail. A ballot will be sent to you in the mail. All requests must be received by October 23rd, but we recommend requesting it as early as possible.

Cast Your Mail Ballot

  • If I’m voting by mail, when do I send my ballot and how do I make sure it’s counted?

    You’ve probably heard that USPS will be handling a high volume of mail and will likely be experiencing delays. That’s why we recommend mailing your ballot by October 20th at the latest if you plan on sending your ballot through USPS. When filling out your ballot, make sure to double-check the instructions to make sure you fill out the ballot correctly--check to see if your ballot requires using a pen with black or blue ink, a signature on the envelope, any witness requirements and postage, if necessary.

    In Arizona, you don't need to include a form of ID with your mail ballot request unless you are registering and voting for the first time. The signature on your ballot must match your other signatures on file.

  • Does my state require my ballot to be postmarked or delivered by Election Day?

    Your ballot-by-mail must be delivered and received by county election officials by 7:00 p.m. on Election Day.

  • What are my non-mail ballot return options?

    You may drop off your ballot at any ballot drop box, dropoff location, early voting location or Election Day voting location in your county on or before Election Day. A family member, household member or caregiver may return an absentee ballot on behalf of a voter. Ballots must be received by county election officials by 7:00 PM on Election Day. Find your voting and dropoff locations here:

  • Can I track my ballot?

    Yes, you can track the status of your ballot here:

    Track Your Ballot

Vote by Mail: What If?

  • What if I request a vote by mail ballot but I decide I want to vote in person instead?

    If you decide you want to vote in person, you can go to your polling place on Election Day. Once the county confirms that you have not sent in a mail-in ballot, your in-person vote will be counted. Do not mail a ballot and also vote in person.

  • What if I don’t receive my ballot by October 20th?

    If you’ve requested your ballot, but you still haven’t received it at least 14 days before the election, you can track the status of your ballot. If it arrives before Election Day, you can drop it off in-person at any ballot drop box, drop-off location, early voting location or Election Day voting location in your county on or before Election Day. You can also request a replacement ballot in person at your county elections office. If you still don’t receive it before Election Day, you can go to your polling place and once the county confirms you have not sent in a mail ballot, they will count your in-person vote. Do not mail a ballot and also vote in person.

Voting In-Person

  • Can I vote early in person?

    If you decide to vote in person, early voting is the safest option--lines will be shorter and allow for easier social distancing. In-person early voting will begin in Arizona on October 7th and ends on October 30th. There is also an emergency voting period between October 31 and November 2. It is not required in each county and is up to the discretion of each county’s Board of Supervisors. For this emergency voting period, an "emergency" means "any unforeseen circumstance that would prevent the voter from voting at the polls" on Election Day. This is for voters "who experience an emergency between 5:00 p.m. on the Friday preceding the election and 5:00 p.m. on the Monday preceding the election."

  • What if I want to vote in-person on Election Day?

    If you are voting on Election Day, wear a mask and keep an appropriate social distance from fellow voters. If you are in line before polls close, do not leave. You legally must be permitted to vote. If you witness any incidents of voter suppression, contact 1-833-DEM-VOTE (1-833-336-8683). Find your polling place options here:

  • Do I need an ID to vote in person?

    Registered voters in Arizona need to confirm their identity when they vote in person. There are several forms of identification you can use, either a form of photo ID or two forms of identification without a photo.

    Learn more about acceptable forms of ID, check for updates and learn more about your state's voter ID laws here:

  • How do I find out where I go to vote?

    As we get closer to in-person early voting, our Make a Plan tool will have up-to-date information from every state on your voting locations (and ballot drop locations).
