General Election: November 8

Know Your Rights

When you go to the polls in Arizona, you'll need to bring ID. With certain types of photo ID, all you'll need is one document, but if you don't have something that works, you can also provide two forms of ID without photographs that have your legal name and address. If the address on your photo ID is out of date or doesn't match your registration, make sure to bring another form of ID that can substantiate your address.

Types of ID to Bring

Before you go to vote, read through this list to make sure you have the right kinds of ID with you.

Voting While Trans

These ID requirements don't mean you won't be able to vote, but you might meet some obstacles. This guide from NCTE is your best resource if you do.

Trans Voter Protection Hotline

Strict voter ID laws mean trans voters can face discrimination at the polls. If you are kept from voting, call or text the trans voter protection hotline at (239) 946-2718 on Election Day.

Making Sense of the Ballot Measures

This November, voters will be presented with 10 ballot measures. The majority of those are explicitly about the democratic process, and three are specifically about how ballot measures work. Many of these can seem dry or technical, but the consequences for both electoral and direct democracy in Arizona would be far reaching and profound. If we want to make sure that the reversal of key Supreme Court decisions can’t undermine LGBTQ+ and reproductive rights in Arizona, we’re going to have to rely on ballot measures to amend the state constitution – whether to remove homophobic sections like Article 30, or to introduce new safeguards.

Ballot measures can be sent to the ballot by the legislature or through a citizen initiative process. Initiatives require extensive signature gathering and are subject to judicial review, which can end up keeping a ballot measure off the ballot altogether, even if it got enough signatures to qualify. Two citizen initiatives have qualified for the ballot this year, and all of the rest originated in the Legislature. Not all of these are in our area of expertise as an organization or have an obvious answer, so we haven’t taken a position on every ballot measure, but you can find many arguments for and against each one on the Secretary of State website.
