Oct. 15 is the last day to register to vote in the 2020 election in Arizona

Have you registered to vote yet in Arizona for the 2020 election?

PHOENIX — Oct. 15 is the last day that Arizonans can register to vote in the 2020 presidential election.

The original deadline was Oct. 5, but a ruling from a federal judge gave Arizonans more time before another federal court ended the deadline early.
