Arizona voters have less than a week to register to vote in the November election, and officials are urging care in filling out the form.
Arizona voters can fill out a voter registration form at ServiceArizona.com. Election officials warn people to pay attention to the instructions so the form is properly filed.
Sporadic problems have been reported to a national election tip line run by ProPublica, a nonprofit, investigative news outlet.
In Arizona, the issues appear to be difficulty entering birthdates. Officials at the Secretary of State’s Office told AZPM that no problems have been identified. They also reminded people to fill in their entire birth year, not just the last two digits.
The online form also uses the signature from the person’s Arizona driver's license or identification card. That occasionally causes problems because the signatures are not always clear.
Pima County election officials said when they get a form from Service Arizona that has a signature that does not meet the standard, the person is still registered to vote. The county then sends out a new form, with a postage paid return envelope, so they can provide an updated signature.
The last day to register to vote is Oct. 5.
