How to report voting problems or voter intimidation complaints
If you have experienced any problems voting or were the victim of voter intimidation, you can report those issues to the authorities.
[Contact Arizona’s Family: Let us know if you have any problems at the polls]
The Arizona Attorney General’s Office is authorized to enforce certain civil and criminal violations of Arizona’s election code through its Election Integrity Unit. The Arizona AG’s office accepts complaints submitted online, as well as complaints mailed to the office. Depending on the nature of the allegations, however, the Arizona AG’s office may refer complaints to another state or local agency for investigation and/or enforcement.
If you have a complaint that requires immediate law enforcement intervention because there is a crime in progress or an escalating situation, contact your local police department immediately.
If you are a victim of voter intimidation, the Secretary of State’s office recommends that you first contact a poll worker. Document what you see as much as possible, including the who, what, when, and where of the incident. Keep in mind that taking photos or video is prohibited inside the 75-foot limit of a voting location.
