Election results and voting information
Where do I vote?
If you’re registered to vote in Coconino Country (your Flagstaff address), the easiest place to vote is the NAU Skydome.
What do I need?
Photo ID with address that matches the address where you’re registered to vote. Example: AZ Driver’s License, or this year Coconino will accept a pdf copy of the voter registration card generated at My.Arizona.Vote on the voter’s phone. You will need your voter’s registration number to access your pdf copy. Poll workers will be providing your voter registration numbers at the voting locations on election day, or can call the county recorder at (928) 679-7860.
Frequently asked questions
Are you unsure about the voting process? Want to make sure you’re prepared for Election Day? Look no further! We’ve compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions on voting to help you navigate the system and ensure your voice is heard.
- If you have an Arizona ID or driver’s license with an address that matches where you currently live, use Service Arizona. You can also update the address on your driver’s license on that site.
- If you have an out-of-state ID, use the paper form to register. You will also need to provide Proof of Citizenship to the County Recorder’s Office.
- If you have a state ID or driver’s license from MI, MN, NY, VT, or WA, it is acceptable Proof of Citizenship.
- For other states, or if you do not have a driver’s license, you can take a picture of your birth certificate OR the page in your passport with your photo on it and email it to the County Elections Office: firstname.lastname@example.org (or, you can drop it in the mail or deliver in person to 110 E. Cherry Ave. in Flagstaff, AZ 86001).
- If you do not provide Proof of Citizenship, you will be registered as a Federal Only voter, meaning you will only be able to vote for Federal-level offices.
You’ll be asked for two addresses:
- Address where you live: The dorm name is sufficient if you live on campus (have an 86011 zip code). If you don’t live on campus, use your full address.
- On-campus mailing address: Find your NAU PO Box on the Postal Services page. If you live off-campus, use your mailing address.
All election mail is direct mail, so check your mailbox.
Find your polling location and bring the required documents (see below) that you’ll need to vote.
- Option #1: A document with your photo, name, and current address (AZ driver’s license)
- Option #2: Two documents with your name and current address (utility bill or bank statement from the past 90 days or vehicle registration); you can show an Option #2 ID on your phone
- Option #3: One document with your photo and name (no address or an old address) plus one document with your name and current address (driver’s license with an old address plus a bank statement with your current address; passport with no address plus a utility bill; military ID with no address plus your vehicle registration)
- Option #4: Native American voters can show an ID with their name
- Your Permanent Early Voting List (PEVL) ballot: If you received a ballot in the mail, bring it to any polling place in the county on Election Day. Skip the line, and don’t worry about showing an ID.
- Bring someone else’s ballot to the polling place if you’re a family member, caregiver, or household member.
- You can bring anything else you need to vote confidently. That might be a sample ballot, a phone with needed information, or someone to translate for you.
Whether you’re voting in person, at the polls, or by mail, here’s some helpful voting information:
- Vote early or on Election Day.
- Join the Active Early Voting List or request a one-time ballot by mail. Mail your ballot back or drop off a ballot at a polling location or the Coconino County Elections Office located at 110 E. Cherry Ave.
- Provisional ballots: If you don’t have proper ID to vote at the polls (for example, if your driver’s license doesn’t list the address where you are registered to vote), or if you go to the wrong precinct to vote, you can still cast a provisional ballot. These ballots will be verified before they are counted.
You have to be 18 to vote; however, you may register to vote if you are 17 and will be 18 on or before the general election.
Yes. Just make sure to follow the instructions under “How do I register to vote?” and provide Proof of Citizenship to get registered for state and local elections.
No, you cannot vote as a foreign citizen. If you are seeking US citizenship, do not attempt to register to vote until you are sworn in at an official naturalization ceremony. This may jeopardize your naturalization application.
- To receive your ballot in the mail, sign up to add your name to the Permanent Early Voter List (PEVL). Being a PEVL voter means you will receive your ballot approximately 27 days before the election. You can then return it by mail at least one week before Election Day so that it gets to the elections office in time or drop it off in person at any time up until the polls close on Election Day.
- Signing up for PEVL makes voting more convenient and allows you more time to consider your votes. It also has been shown that a PEVL voter is more likely to vote than a non-PEVL voter.
- To become a PEVL voter, check the box on your voter registration form to sign up for the Permanent Early Voting List.
- If you’ve already registered to vote and didn’t check that box, you can fill out the PEVL form and mail it to the County Elections Office at 110 E. Cherry Ave., Flagstaff, AZ 86001. If you’re not sure whether you checked the box, it’s best to fill out the voter registration form again.
You should consider registering to vote where you live. Every candidate runs on a platform that affects the people voting for them. These candidates have positions on policies that affect traffic, housing availability, climate change, student loans, and many other matters that affect your daily life. Many of these issues, such as minimum wage, are often left directly to voters. Voting locally gives you an opportunity to understand your community and affect it first-hand with your vote.
If you do not have evidence of citizenship (which can be an Arizona driver’s license), you will be registered to vote only in Congressional and Presidential Elections. This means you can’t vote for our important legislative district senator and representatives or in local elections. So, please take the extra step to prove your citizenship and get your full voting rights in Arizona. See “How to Register to Vote”—the first question on this page.
If you’re not registered to get your ballot by mail, you go to an official polling place. As each election approaches, the County Elections Office will designate polling places. They may be in apartment buildings, churches, schools, or other public places.
In addition to the regular polling locations, there are also voting centers. Any Coconino County Voter can vote at a voting center. For the general election, there may be a voting center at the NAU Skydome.
