“Whenever the people are well informed, they can be trusted with their own government; that whenever things get so far wrong as to attract their notice, they may be relied on to set them to rights.” – Thomas Jefferson to Richard Price January 8, 1789

Why Should You Vote?
Who Can Vote?
Anyone who is a resident of Arizona, a United States Citizen and of 18 years of age by the next general election can register to vote in the state of Arizona. If you have been convicted of a single felony and have satisfied all restitution and probationary requirements you can register to vote. However, if you have been convicted of multiple felonies you will need to have your voting right restored. To restore your voting rights visit the ACLU Arizona Felon Rights Restoration page. If you are considered legally incompetent you will need to petition the courts to have your voting rights restored.
Register to Vote!
You can register to vote online at Service Arizona. If you have registered to vote before and are not sure of your status you can check your registration information at the Office of the Secretary website. When you do not know where to go to vote, the Office of the Secretary’s website also has a tool to find your local polling place. Do you know someone who is not registered to vote and does not have Internet access or does not want to use the Internet?
