New Voter Registration Information
Proposition 200, passed by the voters of Arizona at the 2004 General Election, which became effective January 24, 2005, requires that proof of citizenship must be submitted with all new voter registration forms. This includes a move from one county in Arizona to another county. This does not include changes to address and/or party to current registrations within the same county.
Satisfactory evidence of United States citizenship includes one of the following:
- An Arizona driver’s license number (or copy of the license) or non-operating identification license number (or copy of the identification license), issued after 10/01/1996.
- A driver’s license or non-operating identification license from another state that identifies United States citizenship.
- A legible photocopy of a birth certificate with the name of the applicant that verifies United States citizenship.
- A legible photocopy of the pertinent pages of a United States passport.
- United States naturalization certificate number or the presentation of the original certificate of naturalization. (If only the number is provided, the County Recorder must verify the number with INS prior to adding the applicant to the voter rolls.).
- Bureau of Indian Affairs Card Number, Tribal Treaty Card Number or Tribal Enrollment Number.
A name cannot be added to the voter registration file until these requirements are met.
