Election Day Voting Tips

  1. First things first, if you applied for an Early Ballot via snail mail and didn't send it out, you must take your ballot to your polling location tomorrow. Do NOT mail it. Just take it in the envelope with your signed affidavit to the polls and drop it off.
  2. Make sure you know where your polling location is - you'd be surprised how many people can't find their assigned site and then just drive off home when they can't locate it. Your polling location is printed on all of the Official Election Mail you rec'd prior.
  3. Don't forget your identification. Here is the listing from the Secretary of State on the acceptable forms of ID:

    For a voter to receive a regular ballot, the address on the presented identification must match the address on the voter registration file.

    List #1 - Sufficient Photo ID (including name and address):
    • Valid Arizona driver license or non-operating identification
    • Tribal enrollment card or other form of tribal identification
    • Valid U.S. federal, state or local government issued identification

    List #2 - Sufficient ID without photo bearing the name and address (two required):
    • Utility bill of the voter that is dated within 90 days of the date of election. A utility bill may be for electric, gas, water, solid waste, sewer, telephone, cellular phone or cable television.
    • Bank or Credit Union statement that is dated within 90 days of the date of the election
    • Valid Arizona Vehicle Registration
    • Indian Census Card
    • Property tax statement of the voter's residence
    • Tribal enrollment card or other form of tribal identification
    • Vehicle Insurance Card
    • Valid U.S. federal, state, or local government issued identification
    • Voter Registration Card / Recorder's Certificate
    • Any "Official Election Material" mailing bearing your name and address
  4. If you are turned away from the polls for not having acceptable ID, make sure the workers document it. By court order, all disenfranchised voters from Prop 200 must be accounted for so they can determine how widespread the problems are.
  5. Consider joining one of the campaign rallies to watch the returns. Drinking Liberally Tucson will be gathering at Trident on Speedway just east of Campbell. Michael has more at Blog for Arizona.
  6. Be prepared to engage in widespread protests if the f*ckers try to steal it again.
