Individuals must be registered to vote for at least 29 days prior to an election.
Voter registration for City elections is conducted by the Yuma County Recorder's Office. Mail-in registration forms (postage paid) are available at the Yuma County Recorder's Office, the City Clerk's Office, and at other locations throughout the community such as banks, post offices, and the public library.
Early Voting continues to be the most popular way for Yuma voters to cast their ballots, with an average of 77.25% of all ballots cast at the last four citywide elections being cast by early ballot.
All residents who are registered voters on or before the close of registration for a given election (29 days prior to any election) are eligible to vote early. Early voting is conducted by the Yuma County Recorder's Office. Early ballots may be requested by completing a Request for Early Ballot form which is mailed prior to each election cycle or by contacting the Yuma County Recorder's Office.
Voting Centers are centralized polling places that any registered elector in the City may place their vote, regardless of the precinct in which the elector resides.
As an added convenience to the voters, the City has utilized Voting Centers located throughout the City on election days since 2012. Voting Centers have proven to allow greater flexibility and convenience to the citizens by not restricting them to only one location (precinct) and allowing them to vote at any of the locations. With Voting Centers, there is no wrong place to vote.
