Anyone who wants to vote in the November general election, but isn't registered, is running out of time. The deadline to register is Monday.
Would-be voters can register at any city clerk's office and some post offices, said Yvonne Reed, spokeswoman for the Maricopa County Recorder's office.
Registration forms are also available at the recorder's offices at 222 E. Javelina Ave. in Mesa and 111 S. Third Ave. in Phoenix. The forms also can be obtained on the recorder's Web site, www.recorder.maricopa.gov, or by calling (602) 506-1511.
People also have the option of registering to vote when they renew their driver's licenses.
Proof of citizenship is required to register. This can include an Arizona driver's license, a state-issued identification card, a birth certificate or passport. For mail-in registrations, copies of those forms of identification can be included for verification.
Early voting for the Nov. 4 election begins Thursday, when early ballots will be mailed to voters who have requested them from the county recorder.
People can request early ballots through Oct. 24. The last day to cast an early ballot at an early voting center is Oct. 31. Ballots not delivered by then can be turned in at the polls on election day.
Meanwhile, Secretary of State Jan Brewer announced a program Tuesday that will allow registered Arizona voters serving in the military to vote electronically. The system uses the same type of security technology as banking Web sites. It will allow military personnel stationed overseas to log in with user identifications and passwords they obtained when they requested an early ballot.
"The implementation of this new program will make it much easier for our soldiers to participate in voting, and provide a safe and secure process that will dramatically speed up the time it takes to receive these ballots," Brewer said in a press release.
