Google's simple "How to Register" system:

If you're 18 or older, haven't committed a felony, and live in Arizona whether you're a resident or a full-time student there, you are eligible to vote in Arizona.

But first you have to make sure you're registered. You can visit the link in the description to see if you are registered already. If you aren't registered, or if you've moved counties since the last election, and you have a valid Arizona driver’s license, you can register online. If you don't have an Arizona driver's license - maybe you don't drive or maybe you're a college student from another state - you either have to fill out a form and mail it in. Or register in person at your County Recorder's office. No matter how you register, you need to do it before October 10th to vote in the November general election. The links to both the online and mail-in forms will be down in the description.

Once you've registered, you can vote early if you want. The rules for early voting vary by county, so you'll want to check your county's website in the links below but generally, you can vote in person at your County Recorder's office during their normal business hours starting October 12th until November 7th. Alternatively, you can go to the same website where you checked your registration and you can request to have an absentee ballot mailed to you. You can vote by mail even if you will be in your home county on election day. They just send you a ballot and you fill it out and return it with proof of citizenship, like a photocopy of your ID, birth certificate, or passport. If you request an absentee ballot online, there's even an option to sign up to automatically receive an absentee ballot for every election, so you don't even have to think about it. They'll just mail you a ballot every time you're eligible to vote.

If you're gonna vote in person on election day, you can find out where you're supposed to go using the link below, and you'll need to bring an ID with you like a driver's license, state ID, or Tribal ID. If you don't have one of those, you can bring two of the following: a passport, a military ID, a recent utility bill or bank statement with your name and address on it, an Arizona vehicle registration or insurance card, or a property tax statement. There are a handful of other, less common documents they will also accept. The full list will be in the description.

If you want to see everything that's gonna be on the ballot ahead of time, you can go to your county recorder's website and look at a sample ballot. This will give you a chance to research all the candidates and issues in your local elections ahead of time, but don't panic if there are, like, 25 elections for judges on there. You don't have to vote on every single thing if you don't want to. If you want, you can even print one and bring it with you to the polls so you remember how you want to vote. All the links you need to check your registration, and polling location, and get information on absentee voting are in the description. Thank you for voting, Arizona.
