TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — City of Tucson voters who plan to vote by mail in the Proposition 411 Special Election must drop their ballots in the mailbox by Wednesday, May 11 to guarantee it is received by the City Clerk's office on Election Day.

Proposition 411 is a proposal to amend the Tucson Charter authorizing a 10-year extension of a temporary half-cent (0.5%) sales tax to fund street improvements. The existing temporary half-cent sales tax was approved by voters in 2017 and expires this year.

The public is invited to attend the town hall either in person or online:

  • El Pueblo Senior Center multipurpose room
    • 101 W. Irvington Rd.
  • Virtual attendance on Microsoft Teams
