On Tuesday, March 12, Phoenix voters will decide on three ballot measures relating to pension reform for municipal employees and security for public transit vehicles. The special election is open to Phoenix residents who are registered voters and reside within the city limits at least 29 days prior to the election.
The City Clerk Department has mailed notices to about 395,000 registered voters who reside in the city of Phoenix and are on the permanent early voting list. Voters on the permanent early voting list who want to receive a ballot by mail do not need to return the notice. Voters who received the notice who do not want a ballot by mail for this election should notify the City Clerk by mailing the postage-paid return postcard. The City Clerk needs to receive the postcard by Monday, Jan. 14, to prevent mailing the ballot.
Voters who are not on the permanent early voting list and did not receive this notice may submit a signed request for a ballot by mail by Friday, March 1.
Request forms are available at phoenix.gov/elections or by calling the City Clerk Department.
Phoenix residents who are not registered to vote have until Monday, Feb. 11, to do so.
For this election, Phoenix will be using voting centers. Voters may cast their ballot at any of the 27 voting center locations and will have three days to cast their vote, allowing for greater flexibility and accessibility. Voting centers will be open Saturday, March 9, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Monday, March 11, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Tuesday, March 12, from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. (Election Day). A complete list of voting centers is available at phoenix.gov/elections.
