PHOENIX – Arizonans who want to register to vote or update their voter registration will need to use a paper form between April 17 and 21.
The online voter registration system, along with other resources usually available on ServiceArizona.com will be temporarily unavailable while the Arizona Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Division shuts down and replaces its computer system.
“Because the online voter registration system uses MVD records to confirm the identity of the person registering to vote,” Secretary of State Katie Hobbs said. “Voters will be unable to use ServiceArizona.com to register to vote during the outage. We expect online services to resume no later than April 21.”
For those attempting to register or update registration for a jurisdiction holding an election on May 19, the form must be submitted to the appropriate county recorder’s office by April 20. If the form is returned by mail it must be:
- Postmarked by the deadline and received by the county recorder by 7 p.m. on Election Day.
- Or dated on or before the deadline and received by the county recorder no later than five days after the deadline.
A downloadable voter registration form is available on the Secretary of State’s website at http://go.azsos.gov/kg23. Arizonans can also register to vote at their county recorder’s office and specific voter registration questions should be directed to county recorders. Contact information for all 15 county recorders is available here: http://go.azsos.gov/mgbk. Voters may also contact the Secretary of State’s Election Services Division at 1-877-THE-VOTE.
