Voting by Mail (PEVL)

  • In Arizona, voters can sign up for the Permanent Early Voter List (PEVL). Voters who are on PEVL will be mailed a ballot every election. 
  • Voting using PEVL is safe, private, and convenient. A majority of Arizona voters who regularly vote use PEVL.
  • Voters on PEVL can mail back their ballots, drop them off at an early vote location, or drop them off at a polling place on Election Day.

Election Day

  • Each voter lives in a specific voting precinct (neighborhood). There are specific polling places for each precinct. If you are not signed up for PEVL, you must vote at your assigned polling place. You can find your assigned polling place online. 
  • Polls are open 6AM to 7PM on Election Day.
  • To vote at the polls, you must bring ID, such as a driver's license or state ID.
  • Election Day lines can sometimes continue after the official close time of 7PM. You have the right to vote if you were in line before 7PM and you stay in line. 

Important Dates

  • October 7th: Ballots mailed, early voting opens
  • October 23rd: Extended Voter Registration Deadline
  • October 27th: Deadline to mail back an early ballot
