Voter Registration & Types of Elections

Informacion en Español

The easiest and most important way for citizens to participate in their community is to vote. Whether an election is held to choose local leaders, approve public debt or allow the Town to enter agreements, the voice of each voter counts. A few votes can affect local decisions.

Register to vote online at www.servicearizona.com.  Voter registration forms are also available at the Municipal Services Building, 22358 S. Ellsworth Rd. during regular business hours Monday - Thursday 7:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. (must be mailed to the County Recorder).

Voter Registration Deadlines

Voters must be registered 29 days prior to Election Day. 

Other types of elections

The Council, or under certain circumstances the Clerk, may also call special election when needed. These elections include:

  • Initiative 
    The initiative process allows the public to introduce and enact new legislation.  A petition is required for an initiative. The number of petition signatures required is based upon the number of votes cast in the last election in which the Mayor or Town Council members were chosen.

  • Referendum
    A referendum is a direct popular vote on a public measure.  The number of petition signatures required is based upon the number of votes cast in the last election in which the Mayor or Town Council members were chosen.

  • Recall
    A recall election is a direct popular vote on the removal or right of removal from office of a public official before his/her term has expired. An official cannot be removed during the first six months of his/her first term of office. The number of signatures required on a recall petition is calculated by adding the votes for each candidate in the preceding general election for the office which is subject to recall, even if the official being recalled was not elected in that election. This number is divided by the number of offices filled in that election.  This total is then multiplied by 25 percent.

 All elections are conducted according to Arizona Revised Statutes, Titles 16 & 19 and Queen Creek Town Code.
