Use the National Voter Registration Form

  1. Print and fill out the National Voter Registration Form.
  2. Box 6 - ID Number: Your completed voter registration form must contain the number of your Arizona driver's license, or non-operating identification license issued pursuant to A.R.S. Sec. 28-3165, if the license is current and valid. If you do not have a current and valid Arizona driver's license or non-operating identification license, you must include the last four digits of your Social Security number if one has been issued to you. If you do not have a current and valid driver's license or non-operating identification license or a Social Security number, please write "NONE" on the form. A unique identifying number will be assigned by the Secretary of State.
  3. Box 7 - Choice of Party: Arizona does NOT require that you register with a party to participate in partisan primary elections. If you're not affiliated with any party you can choose the party primary you wish to vote in. If you register with a party you can only vote in that party's primary. Note: This DOES NOT apply to the Presidential Preference Election. Voters must be registered with a recognized party to vote in the Presidential Preference Election.
  4. Box 8 - Race or Ethnic Group: Leave blank. This information is not required.
  5. Review the "Who can vote?" section above and check that you're eligible.
  6. Sign the form.
  7. Send the completed form to your local election official. To register by mail, the form must be postmarked by Monday, October 5, 2020.
  8. If this is your first time registering to vote in Arizona or you have moved to another county in Arizona, your voter registration form also must include proof of citizenship or you may be registered as a federal-only voter. If you have an Arizona driver's license or non-operating identification issued after October 1, 1996, write the number on the form. This will serve as proof of citizenship and no additional documents are needed. If not, you should attach proof of citizenship to the form. Please include a copy of one of the following documents: birth certificate and supporting legal documentation (i.e. marriage certificate) if the name on the birth certificate is not the same as your current legal name; passport; naturalization documents or fill in your Alien Registration Number; Indian census number, Bureau of Indian Affairs Card Number, Tribal Treaty Card Number, or Tribal Enrollment Number, or your Tribal Certificate of Indian Blood or Tribal or Bureau of Indian Affairs Affidavit of Birth. Do not send original documents. Photocopies will not be returned to you.
  9. If you are registering to vote for the first time in your jurisdiction and are mailing this registration application, Federal law requires you to show proof of identification the first time you vote. Proof of identification includes: A current and valid photo identification or A current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck or government document that shows your name and address.
