Registering to vote is just the first step. Check Arizona’s voter ID requirements and make sure you have the right ID to cast a ballot that counts.




Arizona Voter Eligibility Requirements

You must register before you can vote in Arizona.

You are eligible to vote in Arizona if you meet all of the following requirements:

  • You are a citizen of the United States.
  • You are a resident of Arizona.
  • You are 18 years of age on or before the date of the next general election.

You cannot register to vote in Arizona if:

  • You have been convicted of a felony and your civil rights have not been restored.
  • You have been declared incapacitated by a court of law.




Arizona Proof of Citizenship Requirements

Arizona requests proof of citizenship when you register to vote. 

If you don’t provide proof of citizenship, you will be registered as a “federal only” voter. This means you won’t be eligible to vote in state, county, or local elections.

You can change your “federal only” voter status by bringing the required proof to your County Recorder’s office.

Accepted Proof of Citizenship

You can use the number from your Arizona driver’s license or state ID card if it was issued after October 1996.

Voters without an Arizona license or ID can prove their citizenship by providing one of the following:

  • Copy of US passport’s data page showing your name, photo, identifying information and expiration date
  • Indian Census Number, Bureau of Indian Affairs Card Number, Tribal Treaty Card Number, or Tribal Enrollment Number
  • Copy of US naturalization documents or A-Number (Alien Registration Number)
  • Copy of your birth certificate and any legal documents if your name has changed
