National Voter Registration Day

With just three weeks until the voter registration deadline, Americans across the country are celebrating National Voter Registration Day.  

“Susan B. Anthony once reminded audiences, ‘Someone struggled for your right to vote. Use it.’ We are dedicated to making sure every eligible voter that wants to vote is able to register so they can make their voice heard,” said Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer. “Get registered. Get involved. Make your voice heard! Democracy works, government works, when all of us are involved.”

Residents can register online at or using a paper form found at Register.Maricopa.Vote. If you register to vote with a paper form, make sure to include a photocopy of your documented proof of citizenship.

  • Register Online – If the form is completed by 11:59 p.m. on October 11, the voter is eligible for the November General Election. Voters can confirm the time on the EZ Voter confirmation receipt.
  • Drop Off a Paper Form – The Maricopa County Elections Department has a secure drop box available 24 hours a day. Find it in the parking lot at 510 S. 3rd Ave., Phoenix, AZ 85003. The drop box closes at 5 p.m. on October 11.
  • Mail Back a Paper Form – Voters may mail the signed and completed paper form to the Maricopa County Recorder’s Office at 111 S 3rd Ave Ste. 102 Phoenix, AZ 85003. If it’s postmarked on October 11 and received by Election Day, or if it’s dated by October 11 and received by the County Recorder within five calendar days after October 11, the voter is eligible for the November General Election.

It’s important for all voters to check their registration before the election. The county also has about 400,000 inactive voters, which means the voter may have moved, but are still registered to vote. Maricopa County voters can check their registration status, request a ballot in the mail, find a voting location and much more at BeBallotReady.Vote.
