Early voting under way in Scottsdale

Voters registered in Maricopa County can cast an early ballot for the Nov. 6 general election at Scottsdale’s Indian Bend Wash Visitors Center,links to external site 4201 N Hayden Road. The center is open from 8 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday through Nov. 2. The center will also be open for early voting those same hours on Saturday, Oct. 27.

The center will serve as an Emergency Voting location on Saturday, Nov. 3, and Monday, Nov. 5; and as a “Vote Anywhere Site” on Election Day from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.  The center is not a polling site, so it will serve as an additional Scottsdale voting location open to any registered voter in Maricopa County.

To provide voters with an additional option, City Halllinks to external site will serve as an early ballot drop off location from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, through Election Day, Nov. 6.  

Scottsdale voters will elect three City Council members from a pool of five candidates.  The City Council also has called a special election to run concurrently with the Nov. 6 general election. Voters will consider Question 1, a temporary tax increase to fund transportation improvements.  The tax amounts to one penny on every $10 purchase in Scottsdale.  Also on the ballot is Proposition 420, an amendment to the Scottsdale City Charter proposed by initiative petition.

Oct. 26 is the last day to request to receive an early ballot in the mail.

Many Scottsdale residents receive early ballots – more than 100,000. But in some recent elections, fewer than 30,000 were voted and returned. Avoid lines on Election Day and return your postage-paid early ballot.
