In order to receive a ballot, voters must respond (see question 1 on the form). Voters will have a choice whether to receive a city election ballot only or a combined city election and political party ballot.

Attorney general warns consumers of IRS phone scam
Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne is warning Arizona residents of an IRS telephone scam.
Scam artists posing as IRS employees are calling people saying they owe a tax debt and to pay immediately. The scammers are also threatening people with jail time or arrest if payment is not made.
The IRS provides written notice of any tax debt due via U.S. mail and not by phone. In addition, the IRS does not ask for credit or debit card or prepaid card information over the phone.
If you have received one of these calls or receive one in the future, contact the IRS at 800-829-1040 and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) at 877-382-4357 or visit www.ftc.gov.
