Voters have until Tuesday to drop off their ballots
DEWEY-HUMBOLDT - If registered voters in Dewey-Humboldt have not mailed their ballots for Tuesday's special election already, they have until 7 p.m. Tuesday to drop them off.
Town Hall, at 2735 S. Highway 69, will accept ballots in its white election drop box, as will the Yavapai County Administration building at 1025 Fair St. in Prescott.
Town Clerk Debbie Gifford said the post office no longer will accept postmarks for ballots, so voters should put them in one of the drop boxes rather than through the mail.
Town and county officials will remove all ballots from these locations Tuesday night.
Voters who need a replacement ballot should call the Yavapai County Voter Registration Office at 771-3248.
This special election features a recall election of Councilman Len Marinaccio and Councilwoman Nancy Wright. Marinaccio is going up against candidate Mike Generalli, a D-H Planning and Zoning commissioner, while Wright is facing off with candidate Terry Nolan, chairman of the Dewey-Humboldt P&Z.
In addition, citizens are voting on a referendum that would reverse the D-H council's decision this past year to reduce the town's sales tax from 2 percent to 1 percent.
A referendum of the council's July 17 ordinance to rezone 28 acres of the former Young's Farm for Monogram Development's Village Marketplace shopping area also is on the ballot.
