PHOENIX — The deadline to register for Arizona’s presidential preference election next month is here. 

Democrats must register by Tuesday in order to participate in the March 17 election. This is a closed primary election. Only voters registered with the Democratic Party can participate. 

Meanwhile, Republicans and third parties won't participate in the state primary as President Donald Trump continues his bid for reelection.The Arizona Republican Party canceled its primary, clearing Trump's path to Arizona's November ballot. 

People who recently moved or want to change political parties must complete a new voter registration form.

To register, you must be a U.S. citizen, a resident of Arizona and at least 18 years old at the time of the election.

For more voting information, go to the state’s website.

There will be 18 names on the ballot, including 11 democratic candidates that are still in the race. Voters will also see the names of seven candidates who dropped out after the ballot order was set in December.
