Register to vote by Jan. 7th!


Voter Registration…

Monday, January 7th, is the last day to register to vote if you want to vote in the Primary.

In order to vote in the primary, you must be registered as a Democrat or a Republican. No third parties are allowed in AZ primaries (that sucks by the way!) You can then change to Green or whatever later. The officialese from the Recorders web site states:

If someone who is currently registered to vote as an Independent or Party Not Designated wants to participate in the upcoming February 5, 2008 Presidential Preference Election, that voter will have to re-register for the political party affiliation of the candidate that they wish to vote for. They need to change their registration not later than midnight on Monday, January 7, 2008.

Register downtown @ Registrar’s Office in the Old Pink Dome building.
That is:

Pima County Recorder’s Office 115 N Church Ave


You can find all the info at: http://www.recorder.pima.gov/regvote.html

Thanks to Susan T. for reminding me all about this! My daughter turns 18 tomorrow and she is raring to vote so tomorrow she will be downtown bright and early to register. In order to vote in the Feb 5th primary you have to be 18 by that date, so even if you are 17 now — go downtown and register tomorrow. If you can’t do that, register online.

And while I’m at it…. I might as well list the forms of ID that you have to have with you at the polling place in order to vote. (This is @#$$&* unconstitutional! but right now if you want to vote you have to comply.)

From http://www.co.pima.az.us/elections/ID%20polls.htm

Every eligible registered voter is required to show proof of identity at the polling place before receiving a ballot. The voter shall announce his/her name and place of residence to the election official and present one form of identification from LIST #1 that bears the name, address, and photograph of the voter OR two different forms of identification from LIST #2 that bear the name and address of the voter.

A voter who does not provide one form of identification from LIST #1 OR two different forms of identification from LIST #2 shall not be issued a regular ballot, but shall receive a conditional provisional ballot and will have five (5) business days after a General Election and three (3) business days after any other Election to provide sufficient ID to the County Recorder in order for their conditional provisional ballot to count.

List #1 – Sufficient Photo ID (including name and address):
