18 voting centers will soon be open for next week’s Phoenix City Council Election for Districts 2, 4, 6 and 8. Registered voters from those districts may visit any one of these voting centers to cast a ballot, or drop off their voted and signed early ballot, on the following days and times:
· Saturday, Aug. 26, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
· Monday, Aug. 28, 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.
· Tuesday, Aug. 29 (Election Day), 6 a.m. – 7 p.m.
*NOTE: Due to the temporary closure of Burton Barr Central Library, from storm damage, the city of Phoenix cannot use this location as a voting center as originally planned. To accommodate voters planning on using this Central-Phoenix location, the city has secured the neighboring Arizona Jewish Historical Society, located at 122 E. Culver St., as a voting center location, to replace the adjacent Burton Barr Library. An updated map and list of all voting centers being used for the Council Election can be found on the City Clerk’s website, Phoenix.gov/Elections.
Accessible voting devices that permit voters with disabilities to vote independently will be available at these sites. As a reminder, every qualified elector is required to show proof of identity at the polling place before receiving a ballot. Voters who do not present acceptable identification may vote a provisional ballot at the polls, but may be required to present acceptable identification to an election official by 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 1.
For this election, the city will tabulate the ballots and provide results. Unofficial results for the District 2, 4, 6 and 8 races will be released after 8 p.m. on Election Night, Tuesday, Aug 29. The results will be displayed on Phoenix.gov when received. The City will update the results as needed.
The results on the Phoenix.gov website will be updated on Friday, Sept. 1 after remaining early and provisional ballots have been processed and tabulated.
