National Voter Registration Day Sept. 25

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

WASHINGTON D.C. – In 2008, six million Americans didn’t vote because they missed a registration deadline or didn’t know how to register. National Voter Registration Day is an effort to ensure it doesn’t happen again in Nov. 2012.

National Voter Registration Day is a massive nationwide, nonpartisan effort to register thousands of voters on one single day- Sept.25, 2012. Hundreds of organizations, including Empowerment Systems: Apache Junction, have signed on as partners for the event.

On that day, thousands of volunteers and organizations will unleash a nationwide field effort to register eligible voters where they are – on their way to work, on campus, in the community, out shopping and online. By doing this, they hope to ensure that all eligible Americans have the opportunity to register and participate in this year’s election.

This single day of coordinated field, technology and media efforts will create pervasive awareness of voter registration opportunities–allowing tens of thousands of voter’s access to registration services they may not otherwise have.

In Arizona, voters who wish to vote in the 2012 presidential election must be registered to do so no later than Mon. Oct 8, 2012. Registration is available online at AZSOS.gov or by request from the Pinal County Recorder’s Office.

Completed forms can be mailed or returned in person to the County Recorder’s Office 31 N Pinal Street, Building E, Florence, AZ 85132. If by mail, the form must be received by the County Recorder no later than five days after the last day to register to vote in that election or be postmarked 29 days or more before an election and received by the County Recorder by 7:00 p.m. on election day.

The County Recorder’s office will mail proof of registration within six weeks of receiving voter registration.

Those registering to vote in the state of Arizona for the first time or those who have moved to another county must submit a proof of citizenship in addition to their registration paperwork. Arizona driver’s licenses issued after 1996 are accepted as are a photocopy of a birth certificate, a copy of a passport, a copy of naturalization documents or equivalent tribal documents.

Early voter ballots are also available from the County Recorder. Any voter may request to be included on the “Permanent Early Voting List” as long as their mailing address is in Arizona.
