"All elections shall be free and equal, and no power, civil or military, shall at any time interfere to prevent the free exercise of the right of suffrage." Ariz. Const. Art. II § 21
The Arizona Attorney General’s Office (the “Office”) is authorized under A.R.S. § 16-1021 to enforce certain civil and criminal violations of Arizona’s election code, codified in Title 16 of the Arizona Revised Statutes. The Office, through the Elections Integrity Unit (“EIU”), accepts electronic complaints submitted online, as well as complaints mailed to the Office. Depending on the nature of the allegations, however, the Office may refer your entire complaint or portions thereof to another state or local agency for investigation and/or enforcement.
If your complaint requires immediate law enforcement intervention due to a crime in progress or an escalating situation, contact your local police department immediately.
Complaints and supporting materials are considered public records, and may be disclosed pursuant to applicable laws. Please select the nature of your complaint to ensure your complaint is directed to the appropriate agency (some complaints are processed outside of the Attorney General’s Office):

Also, please include any documents, photographs, videos, or other evidence that support your allegations.
If you are one of a group of people interested in filing a complaint, please select one person to file a complaint and attach written statements from the remaining complainants.
While electronic submission through this State Election Law Complaint Form is preferred, complaints may be submitted by mail using this downloadable PDF.
