The Pima County Elections Department has sent out about 190,000 yellow postcards to remind voters of their precinct numbers, polling places and the need to bring identification to their polling places when they vote in the Aug. 28 primary election.

“It has just come to my attention that that card has one wrong thing on it,” Elections Director Brad Nelson said. “It talks about this coming Tuesday being a general election and it is not that. It is a primary.

“Everything else on the card – where a person is supposed to go to vote, the date of the election, the person’s name, their mailing address, everything else is fine.”

Nelson said that the postcard is not required by law. Pima County sends out the cards as a courtesy, he said.

The primary election to select local, state and congressional candidates for the 2012 general election is Tuesday, Aug. 28. The polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Poll workers have been informed about the error on the postcards and have been instructed to accept the cards as one of the pieces of identification that a voter may bring to the polls.

“All the other information on there is accurate and pertinent for next Tuesday’s election,” Nelson said.

The general election is Tuesday, Nov. 6.

The Marana capital improvements 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?

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.
