EC Votes to Support Proposition 411

The Executive Committee voted on April 4th to support Proposition 411, which offers a means of funding road and infrastructure repairs WITHOUT raising local taxes.

In 2017 the citizens of the city of Tucson passed a half-cent sales tax called Proposition 101 to generate $150 million in revenue, 60% of which was allocated to public safety resources rather than roadway safety elements. This half-cent tax is set to expire this year, and voters will be asked to extend the tax on the ballot by means of Proposition 411 in a special election on May 17, 2022. This will generate an additional $590 million to be set aside exclusively for local road and street repair in Tucson over the next 10 years.

Tucson’s streets NEED repairs, and we urge all Pima County voters to vote YES and approve Proposition 411 this May!

Dear Pima County Supervisors:


I am writing to you on behalf of the Pima County Democratic Party (PCDP) regarding vote centers and electronic poll books. At the PCDP Executive Committee meeting on February 7, 2022, we passed a motion to support the adoption of vote centers and electronic poll books to be discussed at your February 15, 2022 meeting. The PCDP Platform supports access to, and participation in our democracy, of which easy access to voting is
essential. The proposed vote centers and electronic poll books ensure that everyone in Pima County can easily cast a ballot, thus participating in democracy.

Eleven of the 15 counties in Arizona already have vote centers. Rural areas in Pima County already use vote centers. By implementing this proposal, the entire county will be able to drop off a ballot or vote in person regardless of where their precinct is located. With this technology in place, election security and efficiency will be increased, provisional ballots will be eliminated, ballots will be counted faster, and voters will have increased
access to voting.

However, time is of the essence for the 2022 election. In order to have a smooth transition from precinct location voting to vote centers, sufficient equipment and back-up plans, training of staff to handle problems, and a robust public information campaign, your approval at the February 15 meeting is essential.

In cooperation with the Recorder’s Office and Pima County Elections Department, the Pima County Democratic Party is ready to help promote the vote centers through our social media outlets and our outreach to voters.

Sincerely,
Bonnie Heidler
Chair, Pima County Democratic Party
