Last week, Arizona held its Primary Election. Now the countdown to the general election on Tuesday, November 8th begins!
But guess what – you don’t have to wait! In Arizona, we’re lucky to have access to early voting. What’s the point of early voting? Early voting relieves the pressure to vote on a specific day in the future. Many of us can’t plan a week ahead of time, let alone 13 weeks from now! Who knows what will happen on November 8th – you or your child could get sick, or you could get stuck at work, or simply get distracted by something happening that day- any number of things could happen that would prevent you from making it to the polls.
Plus, it helps poll workers a ton, because it lightens the flood of ballots on election day, helping to ensure that ballots are counted accurately and election results can be announced sooner.
Early voting allows you to get your ballot early, think about and research your choices and mail it in so that you know your vote will be counted! (just make sure it’s postmarked by November 8th or sooner!)
You can sign up for the Active Early Voting List (AEVL) online at the AZ Secretary of State website. Heads up – you’ll need an AZ Driver’s License or Non-Operating ID number to do it, but it only takes a few minutes. Do it by October 28th!
