Starting July 9, Pima County Administration and Pima County Elections Department is calling for Proposition 463 arguments to be included in the bond publicity pamphlet.

Prop. 463 authorizes the sale of $430 million in general obligation bonds to fund the reconstruction, repair and preservation of existing public roads across the regio. These types of bonds are repaid with property taxes.

Pima County says it can afford to sell these bonds without increasing property taxes as previous bond debt is being paid off rapidly. 

Arizona State law requires every registered voter receives publicity pamphlet that explains the ballot question and include arguments submitted by the public for and against the question.

Pima county is accepting arguments for Prop 463 from July 9 to July 24.

Arguments can be no longer than 300 words and must be received by the Pima County Elections Department by no later than 5 p.m. July 24. There is a $100 fee required and must be in the form of cash, check or money order payable to the Pima County Elections Department.

Arguments must be mailed or submitted in person, to the Pima County Elections Department at 6550 S. Country Club Road, Tucson AZ 85756.

The publicity pamphlet will be mailed to all registered voter households before October 2.

The election is November 6.
