The upcoming Arizona midterm elections are taking place Nov. 8. 

Election season is approaching. With an influx of out-of-state students and first time voters at the University of Arizona, here are some voting resources.

Out-of-state voters can request an absentee ballot to their on-campus address. In order to request a ballot you must be registered to vote. 

To register to vote you need:

  • Proof of  U.S. citizenship
  • Residency in your state for at least 29 days preceding the next election

If you are not registered to vote in your home state yet and have residency in Tucson, you can become a registered voter in Arizona instead. 

Once your ballot is requested and received in the mail, voters can fill out their ballot and resend it before their state’s voting deadline. Each state has different rules regarding when the last days are to register to vote and to request a ballot by. 

To vote in Arizona:

  • Voter registration needs to be completed by Oct. 11 at 11:59 p.m. 
  • Ballots need to be requested by Oct. 28th at 5:00 p.m. and dropped off/mailed out by election day on Nov. 8 at 7:00 p.m.

Rockthevote.org is a one-stop shop for first-time voters from all 50 states. On this page, you can register to vote (or see if you had previously pre-registered to vote), request an absentee ballot (and get redirected to your state’s voting site), get election reminders and learn nationwide voting information. 

Registering to vote and requesting your ballot only takes a few minutes.
