Prop. 101

Deadline: Mail Tucson sales-tax ballots Wednesday

Tucson voters who want to have a say in a possible half-cent increase in the city's sales tax need to drop their ballots in the Prop. 101 special election in the mail on Wednesday, or turn them in by hand at one of seven sites next week. The vote-by-mail election ends Tuesday.

Ballots for the May 16 election were mailed to registered city voters last month.

The election for city voters features just a single question: approval of Prop. 101, a five-year, half-cent increase in Tucson's sales tax to fund police and fire equipment, and road construction. The measure, if approved, will raise about $250 million dedicated to those areas of the municipal budget.

If you haven't yet made up your mind on whether to bump the city's sales tax up from 2 to 2.5 cents per $1 for the next five years, or if you can't find your ballot, you can cast your ballot in person at sites around the city on Tuesday.

These ballot drop-off locations will be open 6 a.m.- 7 p.m. on Election Day:

  • Department of Housing and Community Development, 310 N. Commerce Park Loop
  • Morris K. Udall Regional Center, 7200 E. Tanque Verde Rd.
  • Donna R. Liggins Recreation Center, 2160 N. Sixth Ave.
  • William Clements Recreation Center, 8155 E. Poinciana Dr.
  • El Pueblo Senior Center, 101 W. Irvington Rd.
  • Parks and Recreation Administration, Randolph Park, 900 S. Randolph Way
  • Tucson city elections center, 800 E. 12th St.
