Vote in the Primary Elections- Register by Monday!

Monday is the last day to register to vote in the state Primary Election.  Because so many of Arizona’s legislative districts weigh heavily Democratic or Republican, the winners of the Primary Election are most likely to win their House or Senate seats.

Voters registered as Independents or with a party other than Republican, Democratic or Libertarian, can and should vote in the Primary Election on August 26th.

You can register to vote online or contact your County Recorder office to register in person.

Click here to visit the Pima County Recorder’s Office website.
