Election officials have 10 days to get all votes counted for the Nov. 6 election, and Secretary of State Ken Bennett said there are 602,334 early and provisional ballots that still have to be verified.

State law gives the counties 10 calendar days to verify and process the remaining early and provisional ballots. That gives them until the end of Friday, Nov. 16. A state canvass to certify official election results for federal, statewide and legislative races is scheduled for Dec. 3.

Voters who cast a “conditional provisional” ballot (individuals had insufficient identification when they went to vote at a polling place) have five business days, or until the end of Tuesday, Nov. 13, to return to their county elections office with proper ID.

In Pima County, reports of problems casting a ballot were high this election.

County election officials reported on Wednesday that they were still working to verify 54,541 early ballots, and 26,194 provisional ballots.

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
