Its surprising how much you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit
Important Update 6/19/17:
Following several inquiries by savvy patriots, the MCRO has confirmed ANYONE can register voters WITHOUT a certification from MCRO.
Statement from MCRO liason follows:
Anyone can do Voter Registration on their own (it is a statute)
b) Our new process, Citizens Academy, has the following benefits (for you and the Recorders Office):
- Individual will be Certified as a Deputy Registrar – (after Orientation and a Dep Reg class)- an Affiliate of the Recorder and Elections office; can be involved in Recorder’s Office official Registration events (like the Naturalization Ceremonies), and others that we schedule
- Can determine what other classes they want to complete for other roles of the Academy (Board worker, Special Board worker) – with these classes the individual qualifies to do other election work at our Ballot Centers (re: Polls), and at our Elections Processing center, MCTEC before, during and/or after elections.
c) The Recorder’s Office strongly suggests that all who register voters, and want to work the elections, go through our Orientation and Deputy Registrar training (2 hrs each). It is good grounding for all election work.
An update from the Maricopa County Recorder's office. It appears that in order to register voters going forward, citizens will need to do two things: attend an MCRO Orientation Session, and attend an additional training session to become a certified Deputy Registrar with the county.
For those attending the June 21st Orientation, there is a Deputy Registrar Certification session scheduled on July 1st at the Via Linda Senior Center

I am attending the July 8th Orientation, and will follow that with the Deputy Registrar certification class and I will report back
This is a two hour training for deputy registrars. Deputy registrars will represent the Maricopa County Recorder's Office at events across the county registering voters. Participants will recieve a certificate of completion.
You only need to attend one training to receive your certification.
