The Arizona Secretary of State’s Office has developed the Online Voter Registration (OVR) Unique URL Program to encourage organizations conducting large-scale voter registration drives to do so electronically and securely through the ServiceArizona website, rather than relying exclusively on paper forms.
Approved organizations participating in the Program will be assigned a unique URL to use and/or distribute for voter registration purposes and will receive periodic reports of valid voter registrations and updates submitted through their assigned URL.
The goals of the Program are to: (1) increase complete and valid voter registrations submitted through voter registration drives; (2) protect sensitive voter information collected during voter registration drives; and (3) reduce the burden on County Recorders and the Secretary of State’s Office of processing paper registration forms from voter registration drives.
2022 Program Information
A limited number of unique URLs are available and will be provided to approved organizations selected from among those who apply. Approved organizations must renew their registration on an annual basis.
The deadline to apply for the 2022 Unique URL Program was Tuesday, February 8, 2022. For questions, please contact [email protected]. Current awardees are listed below.
State-recognized political parties and 501(c)(3) organizations engaged in nonpartisan voter registration activities are eligible to participate in the Unique URL Program.
Additionally, an organization must:
