Voters must register by July 5th to vote in the August 2nd primary
YUMA, Ariz. (KECY, KYMA) - If you’re planning on voting in the Arizona primary election on August 2, but you’re not yet registered, time is running out.
The deadline to register to vote is Tuesday, July 5.
Voters need to be registered to vote 29 days before the election they plan to vote in.
Rural Arizona Engagement says it’s important to make your voice heard.
Especially in elections that will directly impact the community you live in.
"It’s not just about what’s going on in D.C.," Alan Gonzalez said. "Here in Yuma, where the lines are drawn, water resources, school funding for our children, that’s decided here in our county.”
Voters can register online or at the Yuma County Recorder’s office on Main street.
