Yavapai County Recorder Leslie Hoffman reminds voters that the special election held Tuesday, May 15, on whether to extend the quarter-cent sales tax to support the county jail system has opened to early voters. They may vote early in person through May 15 at the Yavapai County Recorder’s Office, 1015 Fair St., Room 228, Prescott, or 10 S. 6th St., Cottonwood.
Ballots have been mailed the week of April 23 to all eligible voters. The last day to request and be mailed a ballot is Friday, May 4. Call 928-771-3248 to make the request. If voters drop off their ballots in a drop box, the county can save the postage — 54 cents each — in tax dollars. In 2017, the county saved a total of $7,981.02 due to drop box usage.
