The Democratic Presidential Primary was held Tuesday in Arizona. I hope everyone is happy with the choice that Arizona made.
On a personal note, I was at the R-C Ranch for the day, which was the site for the Zane Gray District. he site was a drop-off point for mail-in ballots not mailed by you and to vote if that was your preference.
There were many mail-in ballots that were returned to Dixie Mundy of the Gila County Election Boardin Globe, because of incorrect addresses. I was asked to take along voter registration forms for everyone in Tonto Village who did not receive a mail-in ballot, and to correct the wrong addresses.
I now have these forms and ill get in touch with each of you in the next few weeks. Please fill out the forms and mail them to Globe. This ensures each voter of receivingample ballots and mail-in ballots for the primary and the general elections this year.
For those of you who live in other areas who did not receive a mail-in ballot this time, either contact meat (928) 478-4575 or call Dixie Mundy at (800) 291-4452, ext. 4452n Globe.I will make sure that you receive a voter registration form.
I did make a boo-boo last week, I mentioned that Independent registrants could also vote on Tuesday,that was not correct, I apologize if I caused any inconvenience for anyone.
