That’s why we’re sharing the following information with you to make sure you, your friends, and family are prepared and can make your voice heard. Now is the time to start developing your plan for voting. By voting, we can help build political power in our communities and ensure that our experiences and needs are valued, represented, and made a priority to those we elect to public office.
Below is a guide to help you get out to the polls and vote:
Know Before You Go
- Who’s on the Ballot: Learn who the candidates are and where they stand on issues by going to https://www.vote411.org/
- Find Your Polling Place: Check out vote.org’s website for polling locations, hours and important dates.
- Voter ID Laws: Before leaving home to vote, know your state voter ID requirements. In Arizona, you can vote on Election Day without a photo ID, but you will need some proof of identification confirmed within 5 days of placing your vote in order for it to be counted.
Voting In Person
- Election Day is November 2nd. Find out when polls will open and close by consulting your State or Local Election Office Website.
Voting By Mail
