Are you fully prepared to vote in the presidential preference elections on Tuesday?

Here's the top 5 things you need to know ahead of Arizona's Super Tuesday.

Where can I go to vote?

During the primaries, registered voters are allowed to vote (or drop off their absentee ballots) at ANY polling location. This is different than the November election, in which to vote, you can only attend your assigned polling location.

Take a look at the map below to find the nearest polling location to you. (For a full-screen view, click here).

You can also find the nearest polling location to you using the Maricopa County Recorder's locator.

What do I need to bring with me to vote?

You need to bring an official form of identification (driver's license, passport, voter registration I.D.) to be able to vote.

If you do not have an official form of identification, bring two items that show your name and address, like utility bills or bank statements.

I'm registered as an Independent, can I vote in Arizona's primaries?

No, the presidential preferences only allow Democratic, Republican and Green party members to vote in this election.

Whose views most closely align to my own?
