What is the difference between a State Registration Form and a Federal Registration Form?
The state voter registration form requires proof of citizenship so you may vote in federal, state and local elections. The federal voter registration form does not require proof of citizenship; however, you are only eligible to vote in federal elections, such as President, U.S. Senate, and U.S. House of Representatives.
Permanent Early Voting List
Arizona also has a Permanent Early Voting List (PEVL), which allows a voter to automatically receive a ballot by mail for every election they are eligible to vote in. To sign up for PEVL online, you can either update your registration online through Servicearizona.com or submit a written request with your signature to your County Recorder.
To check the status of your voter registration, or to confirm if you are on the Permanent Early Voting List, click ServiceArizona.com

Voters will receive a registration card in the mail from their County Recorder. Voters are encouraged to review the registration card to ensure the information is correct and as they intended. If you have questions or need a replacement voter registration card, please contact your County Recorder directly.

WHAT IS CLEAN ELECTIONS?
The Citizens Clean Elections Commission is a non-partisan commission created by voters that educates voters, and provides campaign funding and enforces campaign finance rules and laws.
Clean Elections was founded in 1998 after Arizona voters passed the Citizens Clean Citizen Elections Act (A.R.S. Title 16, Chapter 6, Article 2) to root out corruption and promote confidence in our political process.
