Counties mailing early ballots on sales tax

County elections officials across Arizona are mailing early ballots to voters for the May 18 special election on a proposed temporary sales tax increase to help balance the state budget.

Those voters being mailed early ballots are those who have requested placement on the permanent list for early voting and those who requested early ballots specifically for the May 18 special election.

Thursday was the first day allowed under state law for sending early ballots, and other voters who want early ballots mailed to them can request them up until May 7.

The Legislature approved holding the special election and the sales tax referral in February at the request of Gov. Jan Brewer.
