General Election

Changes to rules since 2020 in Arizona
  • In 2020 the state sent absentee-ballot applications to all active voters. Arizona will not send those applications to all voters in 2022.
  • The deadline to register to vote was pushed back 10 days in 2020 to provide additional flexibility to voters. In 2022, the voter registration deadline has returned to the earlier, pre-pandemic date.
  • For voters who vote by mail, election officials are now required to make a reasonable effort to notify the voter if they failed to sign their ballot. Voters have until the close of polls on Election Day to correct their unsigned ballot so it will count.
  • Arizona’s Permanent Early Voting List has been renamed the Active Early Voting List to reflect a key change. Until 2022, voters who signed up for the PEVL would automatically receive a mail ballot for each election in which they were eligible to vote. Now, the state can remove voters from this list if voters do not use the early ballot mailed to them at least once in two straight two-year election cycles.
