All Mail Elections

This year, the Pima County School Superintendent’s Office is conducting special elections on behalf of 6 school districts. Continental, Flowing Wells, Sunnyside, Tanque Verde, and Vail school districts will have elections for Governing Board, a bond, and several overrides. Four of these school districts, Continental, Flowing Wells, Sunnyside, and Vail, will be conducting their elections entirely by mail. This is the first time that any school district in Pima County will conduct its election entirely by mail. Voters who live in Flowing Wells, Sunnyside, and Vail school districts and also live within the city limits of the City of Tucson will receive two ballots in October – one for their school district from the Pima County Recorder and the other from the City of Tucson. It is important that voters are aware that there are distinct differences in the process.
