ELECTION NOTICE OF THE TOWN OF CLARKDALE/AVISO DE ELECCIÓN DEL PUEBLO DE CLARKDALE

 

“INDEPENDENTS” CAN VOTE IN THE PRIMARY

Just a reminder that “Independents” can vote in the Primary they just need to tell the County which ballot they want

to vote BY JULY 12th. If you are an Independent and are on the Permanent Early Voter List (PEVL), along with your

new Voter ID Card, will be a tear-off card to send back with your ballot choice.

  • The ballots available to choose from will be party ballots from the Americans Elect, Democratic, Libertarian and Republican Parties.

  • If you live in a city or town and they are having an election, each political party ballot will include all the party races and the City/Town races. 

  • There will also be a separate City/Town only ballot with just the City/Town races. 

  • Independents will need to choose one ballot from these five - Americans Elect, Democratic, Libertarians, Republicans, OR City/Town. 

HOW TO CAST YOUR VOTE AT THE PRIMARY ELECTION

The Primary Election being held on August 26, 2014, which includes those running for Clarkdale Town Council along

with Clarkdale’s Alternative Expenditure Limitation (Home Rule) Option will not be run as an “All Mail Ballot” as in the past. 

 

Vote Center:  Registered Voters will need to cast their vote at a “Vote Center” unless they are registered on Yavapai

County’s Permanent Early Voting List or request a mail ballot.

 

Request a Mail Ballot:  To request a ballot by mail contact Yavapai County Election & Voter Registration Office,  

either verbally or in writing, email, or through their Early Ballot Request website no sooner than May 26, 2014 and no

later than August 15, 2014.

 

Permanent Early Voting List: Any registered voter may request to be included on the “Permanent Early Voting List”

in order to automatically receive an early ballot by mail, for all elections they are eligible to participate, that are governed

by state law.  In order to be included on the “Permanent Early Voting List”, the voter must make a written request

specifically asking that their name be added to the permanent list. The request must include the voter’s name, residence

address, mailing address within the State of Arizona, date of birth, and signature.

 

Remember, many races, especially local races, are determined in the Primary, so make sure you get your ballot and VOTE!

Alternative Expenditure Limitation (“Home Rule Option”)

Clarkdale voters will be asked to extend the Town of Clarkdale’s Alternative Expenditure Limitation (“Home Rule Option”)

at the August 26th Primary Election.  If passed, it will mark the 7th time that Clarkdale voters have approved the Home Rule

Option in Clarkdale since its inception in 1980.

In 1980, Arizona voters approved a tax reform package that, among other things, placed an expenditure limitation on cities

and towns.  Under a state imposed expenditure limitation, a city or town may only expend a certain amount of funds, regardless

of the city or town's revenue or individual needs.  The city or town's budget is limited by the state-imposed ceiling.

The legislation allowed local voters in cities and towns to approve an exception to the state imposed expenditure limitation. 

Under the Alternative Expenditure Limitation (Home Rule Option) the city or town may determine its own expenditures based

on a city or town budget.  With voter approval, the Town is then limited to the expenditure of estimated available revenues,

whether such expenditures are less or more than, the state imposed limit.

Under a Home Rule Option, if approved by the voters, the amount of revenue estimated to be available to fund the operation

of your town government is $21,268,974 in 2015-2016, $22,332,423 in 2016-2017, $23,449,044 in 2017-2018 and $24,621,496

in 2018-2019. 

 

The town will utilize the expenditure authority for all local budgetary purposes including General Government Services, Library,

Community Development, Municipal Court, Police, Public Works, Capital Projects, Streets, Wastewater, Water, Sanitation,

Cemetery, Grants, Development, and Donations.

 

Under the state-imposed limitation the town estimates it will only be allowed to expend approximately $9,996,837 in 2015-2016,

$9,226,057 in 2016-2017, $7,681,943 in 2017-2018 and $6,265,515 in 2018-2019 for the operation of your local government

regardless of available revenues above those amounts.

A detailed summary listing available revenues and estimated amounts to be expended in specific areas will be included in the

Publicity Pamphlet that registered votes will receive the end of July.

Clarkdale voters must decide every four years whether to continue operating under the Home Rule Option, and have done so

each time they’ve been asked since 1980.

 

2014 CANDIDATE NOMINATION PACKETS AVAILABLE

 
In Arizona, persons are nominated to run for public office in the Primary Election by a petition procedure for nomination.

This process allows any qualified voter within the Town boundaries of Clarkdale the opportunity of seeking public office.

The nomination paper is a formal notification to the Town Clerk that the individual intends to seek public office.

Candidate Nomination Packets are available Monday through Thursday between the hours of 8:00 AM and 5:30 PM

and Friday between 8:00 AM and Noon at the Town Hall located at 39 N Ninth Street, Clarkdale. Candidates must file

a Political Committee Statement of Organization or a $500 Threshold Exemption Statement with the Town Clerk before

receiving or expending money, circulating Nomination Petitions, or distributing campaign literature. In order to be on

the ballot, completed packets must be filed with the Town Clerk between April 28, 2014 and May 28, 2014.

There are two seats with four year terms for Councilmember and one seat with a two year term for Councilmember

on the August 26, 2014 ballot. A candidate is declared elected to office in the Primary Election if that candidate has

a majority of all votes (ballots) cast. A canvass of the August 26, 2014 election results will determine if the

November 4, 2014 General Election for local candidates is required.

Future issues of the “Small Talk” will provide additional information regarding the August 26, 2014 Primary Election

process and items on the ballot. Town Clerk, Kathy Bainbridge, may be contacted at 928-639-2445 for

specific information.

Voter Registration

There are new voter registration requirements due to the implementation of Proposition 200.  To avoid any problems

with being registered in time for an election, we encourage everyone who is not registered to vote, to register early.

Voter registration forms are available at the Yavapai County building, Clarkdale Town Hall and the Clark Memorial Library.

The Yavapai County Voter Registration office can be contacted directly at (928) 771-3248, ask for the Voter Registration Office.

If this is your first time registering to vote in Arizona, or you have moved from another county in Arizona, your voter

registration form must also include proof of citizenship or the form will be rejected. If you have an Arizona driver license

or non-operating identification issued after October 1, 1996, write the number in box 13 on the front of the Arizona Voter

Registration Form. This will serve as proof of citizenship and no additional documents are needed. If not, you must

attach proof of citizenship to the form. Only one acceptable form of proof is needed to register to vote. The following

is a list of acceptable documents to establish your citizenship:

  • A legible photocopy of a driver’s license or non-operating identification license issued by another state that identifies United States Citizenship on the license.

  • A legible photocopy of a birth certificate that verified United States Citizenship (if using a married name, you will probably also need to submit a legible copy of your marriage license).

  • A legible photocopy of your United States passport containing your name and passport number.

  • A legible photocopy of United States naturalization documents or the number of the certification of naturalization. If only the number is provided, it will need to be verified before the registration can be processed.

  • A Bureau of Indian Affair’s Card number, Tribal Treaty Card Number or Tribal Enrollment Number on the registration form.

  • A legible photocopy of a Tribal Certificate or Indian Blood or Tribal or Bureau of Indian Affairs Affidavit of Birth.

  • Do not send originals! To avoid any problems with being registered in time for the election, we encourage everyone

    who is not registered to vote to register early.
