Arizona Allows Voting By Mail

March 25, 2020:  Arizona is one of the states that allows for voting by mail in all elections.  There are two ways to get a mail ballot

  1. Get on the Permanent Early Voting List - once on this list you will automatically receive a mail-in ballot for each election, approximately 30 days prior to the election date.  This is highly recommended.  Get on the list and not worry about getting a ballot for all future elections.

  2. Request a mail in ballot from your county recorder - the last day to do that is approximately 10 days before the election.  For Arizona voters the last day to request a mail-in ballot if you do not automatically receive one is July 24, 2020 for the August 4, 2020 state primary election, and October 23, 2020 for the November 3 2020 general election.   Don't wait until the last day to request a mail-in ballot, you may run out of time to get it back.  (See below)

Something to remember:  If you mail in your ballot, it must be received by your county elections department no later than election day!  (No excuses.)  You should allow at least five days for the mail to arrive because USPS, particularly in the rural counties, is not that reliable.  If you have less than the five days, you can drop of your ballot either at a county dropbox or deliver it to the polls on election day.

How to get on the Permanent Early Voting List (PEVL)

If you are not already receiving a mail-in ballot, you can request to be on the PEVL through your county recorders.  Below are links to the form for each of the four counties that make up Arizona state Legislative District 14 (LD14).
