Bring ID to the polls

Whether you vote at an early voting location or at your assigned voting location on Election Day, bring ID with you, such as an Arizona Driver License or non-operating identification card. Don’t have either one? See what other documents or combinations of documents are accepted here.

To find your assigned voting location on Election Day, Tuesday, November 8, 2016, visit the Pima County Recorder’s website.

Voting by mail—the PEVL (Permanent Early Voting List)

You can ask to be put on the PEVL and have your ballot mailed to you in this and future elections. Voting by mail lets you fill out your ballot at the kitchen table—no stress!—and mail it back or drop it off. When you drop off your PEVL ballot, there’s no waiting, no need to bring ID with you, and you can drop it off at any Pima County voting location. Print and fill out a PEVL request form or check the PEVL box on your voter registration form. PEVL ballots must be received by the Election Official by Election Day, November 8, so they should be dropped in the mail preferably no later than November 1.

Election Day is Tuesday, November 8, 2016

Polls are open from 6am to 7pm

To find your assigned voting location on Election Day, visit the Pima County Recorder’s website.

Bring ID with you, such as an Arizona Driver License or non-operating identification card. Don’t have either one? See what other documents or combinations of documents are accepted here. If you have a PEVL ballot, you can drop off your ballot at any voting location on Election Day—no waiting in line and no need to bring ID with you.

Problems voting?

You have the right to cast a provisional ballot if you are not given a regular ballot at a voting location. Here are some common reasons for that:

Problem
Action
Did not bring valid ID to voting location You will be given a conditional provisional ballot and your vote will be counted if you bring valid ID to the voting location by 7pm on Election Day or to the Pima County Recorder’s Main or Eastside Office (240 N. Stone Avenue or 6920 E. Broadway Blvd., Suite D) by 5pm Wednesday, November 16, 2016. (The Pima County Recorder’s Office is open M-F, 8am-5pm, but will be closed Friday, November 11, for Veterans Day.)
You are not on the voting location’s list because you: Requested to have your ballot mailed to you.
If you did not receive your ballot in the mail, or if you did receive it but lost it or did not mail it in early enough for it to be received by Election Day, your provisional ballot will be counted.
Are not registered to vote in Pima County.
Your provisional ballot will not be counted.
Moved and did not re-register to vote.
You need to update your voter registration any time you change your name or address. Check your voter registration here or by calling the Pima County Recorder’s Office, (520) 724-4330. If you vote at the wrong voting location, your provisional ballot will not be counted. (If you have a PEVL ballot, however, you can drop it off at any Pima County voting location.)
