GCU News Bureau Arizona’s voter registration deadline for the Nov. 3 election has been extended to 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 23. Tens of thousands of college students in Arizona have not yet registered to vote, according to nonpartisan nonprofit Public Citizen. Students can check if they are already registered to vote, and that they’re voting at the same school or home location where they’re registered, by visiting the Arizona Voter Information Portal. Students who are not registered can do so online. It takes an average of 2 minutes to register. They then can decide whether to vote in person or by mail. Early voting will be offered at least on weekdays from Wednesday through Oct. 30. Look up where to vote here. To vote by mail, request a ballot no later than Oct. 23.

It is recommended to drop off, rather than mail in, ballots if it’s 10 days or less before the election. Find drop-box locations by visiting the county recorder’s website.
