CITY OF SCOTTSDALE
NOVEMBER 8, 2016 GENERAL/SPECIAL ELECTION
The City of Scottsdale held a General Election on Tuesday, November 8, 2016, for the purpose of electing a Mayor and three Councilmembers.
The Scottsdale City Council also called a Special Election to run concurrently with the November 8, 2016 General Election, for the purpose of referring to the voters, as Proposition 490, a Scottsdale City Charter amendment, adopted by the Scottsdale City Council in Ordinance No. 4247.
Proposition 490 asked voters to consider an amendment to the Scottsdale City Charter. The amendment, which was approved by Scottsdale voters, corrected outdated Charter language to accurately reflect: 1) when Scottsdale candidate elections are held; and 2) when Mayor and Councilmember terms begin.
