Voters with Disabilities
Accessible Polling Places: All polling locations and vote centers have been chosen with special needs voters in mind. Each location will provide handicap parking and be able to accommodate individuals in wheelchairs, as well as, individuals with visual or hearing impairments. Oftentimes a temporary modification will be made to the polling location providing easier accessibility for the voter.
Accessible Voting Systems: All polling locations and vote centers must have an accessible voting device for use by voters with disabilities. In addition to the accessible voting devices, each poling location will have magnifying instruments, large print versions of the publicity pamphlets and trained poll workers who are ready to assist you. View the accessible voting device that will be used in your county (PDF).
Curbside Voting: Voters who are unable to enter the polling location or voting center may ask that a ballot be brought to them by an election poll worker.
Permanent Early Voting: If you have a permanent physical disability, you may request to be placed on the Permanent Early Voter List (PEVL). You will be mailed a ballot for each election that you are eligible for and can vote from the comfort and convenience of your own home.
The Arizona Center for Disability Law will run a hotline to address any election concerns for persons with disabilities. The ACDL also will file Help America Vote Act (HAVA) complaints.

7:00 AM – 7:00 PM on Election Day
- I recently moved and did not update my voter registration, where do I vote?
You should vote at the assigned location for your new address. The location of your new polling place can be found through our Voter View application or by contacting your County Recorder. The new polling place will not have you on its roster, but you will be able to vote using a provisional ballot. The new address you provide on the provisional ballot will automatically update your voter information for future elections.
- There is a polling location near my work, can I just vote there?
No. Unless you live in a county that is using vote centers for the election, you must vote at your assigned polling location for your ballot to be valid and counted.
- Where is my polling location?
- I still have my early ballot, will I have to wait in line at a polling location just to drop it off?
No. If you were unable to mail back your early ballot in time, you can skip the line and turn it in at any polling location within your county. The poll workers will be able to assist and show you where to drop off your early ballot.
- What do I need to bring with me on Election Day?
Every qualified elector is required to show proof of identity at the polling place before receiving a ballot. Find out what qualifies as an acceptable form of identification in Arizona.
- Why did I have to vote a provisional ballot?
A provisional ballot is given to anyone who is not on the polling location’s roster or if the voter was unable to provide a valid form of identification. There are a few reasons why your name was not included on the roster.
- You recently moved and did not update your voter information in time
- You voted at a polling place not assigned to you
- You requested an early ballot by mail
- Your voter registration is no longer active or you are not registered at all
If you voted at the correct polling place, provided proper identification and are registered to vote in the county in which you voted, your provisional ballot will be counted.
- I did not have any ID with me on Election Day, when is the deadline to provide ID for my vote to count?
If you were unable to provide valid identification on Election Day you will be provided with a conditional provisional ballot. The ballot will be valid and counted after you provide ID to your polling location before 7:00 pm on Election Day OR at the county elections office within five business days after a general election and three business days after any other election.
