Misdemeanor convictions in Arizona
You do not lose your right to vote if you are convicted of a misdemeanor in Arizona. If you are incarcerated for a misdemeanor you should check voter registration status, register to vote if necessary, and request an absentee ballot from office administrators at your complex.
You can vote while awaiting trial for any charge, even if incarcerated, as long as you have not lost your right to vote due to a prior conviction.
Felony conviction in Arizona
You lose the right to vote if you are convicted of a felony. If you are convicted of only one felony, your voting rights are automatically restored upon completion of all supervised release. However, if you are convicted of two or more felonies, your right to vote can only be restored through a judge or if pardoned.
Next steps for restoring voting rights in Arizona
If you have been convicted of two or more felonies, apply for restoration to the superior court in the county in which you were convicted, then register to vote if your rights are restored. If you are uncertain about the next step, call 1-866-OUR-VOTE for more information.
