1. 如果想要參加八月二十八日的投票,而你以前沒有做過選民登記的話,那麼你必須在七月三十日或以前完成選民登記。登記網站是 或是 你將會需要你的駕照或是身分號碼。

2.  在登記時,你可以選擇一個政黨成為該黨的黨員,或是不參加政黨,成為獨立選民。如果你加入某黨,那麼你可以參加也只能參加該黨在八月二十八日的初選。如果你是獨立選民,那麼你可以任選某一政黨的初選。(AZ屬於半開放式初選,有的州只有黨員才能參加某黨的初選)

3. 通信投票又叫做提早投票,八月二十八日的選舉,通信選票將在八月一日開始寄出。如果想要參加通信投票者,需要在選民登記時註明,如此選委會就會將通訊票寄給你。如果你沒有將票寄回,那麼你可以在八月二十八日時,將你的選票封好(記住一定要在信封上規定的地方簽名),送到任何投票所去。你可以選擇在八月二十八日,在你所規定的投票所,帶著你的證件,現場投票。大約有四分之三的選民參加提早投票。

4. 美國政治是兩黨政治,因為它的選舉制度,往往造成兩黨對決,讓第三黨或是無黨者幾乎沒有機會當選。但是仍然有一部份的選舉是沒有政黨初選的,如市政府,學區政府,以及其它許多少為人知的選舉。



5. 錢德市的市長和市政委員,任期四年,連選只能連任一次。市長每四年改選,市政委員每兩年改選一半(三席)。每一個選民可以投一張市長票,以及最多三個委員票(也可以不投,只投一個,或是只投兩個。)5a。依過去四次選舉,欲在初選時直接當選錢德勒市政委員,需要最少一萬二千張票,依選民人數(沒有投票權,或是沒有做選民登記的人太多)以及投票率(亞裔是投票率最低的族群)估計,參與投票的亞裔選票總共不超過三百張,因此,如果你支持小弟的話,請在小弟參選時,只投給我,不要投其它人,以增加小弟的當選機會。你投給其它人的每一張票,都將降低小弟的當選機會)。


6. AZ的州議會分參眾二院,參院有三十位議員,眾院有六十位議員,任期都是二年, 同一議員可以連任三次(總共四次)。全州分為三十個選區(約二十一萬人口),每一個選區選出一個州參議員,二個州眾議員。每一次選舉時,先由八月政黨初選選出代表該黨參選的候選人,再參加十一月的普選,與其它黨的候選人對決。普選時,選民不分黨籍,可以任意投票。
