Voting In Person
In Arizona you can vote in person on Election Day or you can vote early starting four weeks before the election. This year voting will be a little different. We will be voting at Vote Centers instead of neighborhood polling places. And the check-in process will also be a bit different.
What Is Changing
Starting this year Election Day voting will take place at 129 Vote Centers located throughout Pima County. You will be able to vote at the center that is most convenient to you. Early voting will also take place at a smaller number of Early Voting Sites.
When you get to the Vote Center a poll worker will check you in, verify your information and give you a ballot. But now the check-in will be done on a tablet computer, instead of using pre-printed lists. A ballot for your precinct will be printed on the spot and handed to you. From this point the voting process is the same as before.
ID Is Required
Everyone must show a valid ID to vote. What qualifies as valid ID can get complicated.
Most people use one of these photo IDs:
- Valid Arizona Driver License
- Valid Arizona non-operating identification card
- Tribal enrollment card or other form of tribal identification
- Valid United States federal, state, or local government-issued identification
If you don’t have one of these forms of ID, you still have a variety of options. But here’s where it gets a little complicated. But don’t worry, we’ve made it easy to figure out. You can learn more about the different acceptable ID options by going back to our Voter Toolbox and clicking on ID FOR VOTING.
In person voting begins 4 weeks before an election. Voting will be held at Early Vote Sites throughout Pima County. You can also drop off you completed ballot there.
