A voter may be removed from AEVL for any of the following reasons:
- The voter makes a written request to be removed from the AEVL, which includes the voter's name, residence address, date of birth, and signature; A.R.S. § 16-544(I).
- The 90-day notice is returned as undeliverable, and the County Recorder is unable to contact the voter to confirm the voter's continued desire to remain on the AEVL; (A.R.S. § 16-544(M)) or
- The voter's registration record is placed in an "inactive" or "canceled" status. A.R.S. § 16-544(H)(2).
- The voter did not vote by early ballot in any election for two consecutive election cycles, approximately four years, (beginning after the 2022 election cycle) AND failed to return a notice and confirm in writing the voter's desire to remain on the AEVL, within 90 days of receiving the notice. The voter will still remain an active voter, they will simply no longer receive a ballot-by-mail.
On or before January 15 of each odd-numbered year, starting in 2025, the County Recorder shall send a notice to each voter who is on the AEVL and who did not vote by early ballot for any of the elections in the previous two election cycles. The notice informs the voter that, to remain on the AEVL, the voter must:
- Confirm in writing the voter's desire to remain on the AEVL; and
- Return the completed and signed notice that contains the voter's address and date of birth to the County Recorder within 90 days of receipt of the notice.
If a voter receives a notice as described above and the voter does not respond to the notice within the 90-day time period, the County Recorder will remove the voter from the AEVL. A.R.S. § 16-544(H)-(I), (K).
