When you go to your polling place tomorrow you are going to have to identify who you are. 
 
One way to do that is by bringing a photo i.d. like a driver's license. 
 
The other way of doing it is by bringing two other pieces of identification. If you don't have a photo ID., it could be a voter identification card and a bill with your name on it.
 
"We have a lot of people asking us that question, do I have to go to my own polling place? No, you are passing polling place drop it off. You do not have to go to your own polling place to drop off an early ballot," said Maricopa County Recorder Helen Purcell.
 
Just walk right up and drop it in the box. You do not have to wait in line.
 
To avoid a long line, try to vote mid-morning or mid-afternoon but polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
 
And lastly, if you are in line at 7 p.m. you will be able to vote.
