How do I meet the proof of citizenship requirements when registering to vote in Arizona

Your voter registration form will be rejected if it does not include proof of citizenship.If you have an Arizona state issued ID (driver license or non-operating identification card issued after October 1, 1996) this will serve as proof of citizenship and no additional documents are needed. If not, you must provide one of the following:

  • A legible photocopy of a birth certificate that verifies citizenship and supporting legal documentation (i.e. marriage certificate) if the name on the birth certificate is not the same as your current legal name
  • A legible photocopy of the pertinent pages of your passport
  • U.S. naturalization documents, presented to your County Recorder
  • Your Alien Registration Number
  • Your Indian Census Number, Bureau of Indian Affairs Card Number, Tribal Treaty Card Number, or Tribal Enrollment Number
  • A legible photocopy of your Tribal Certificate of Indian Blood or Tribal or Bureau of Indian Affairs Affidavit of Birth.
