District 2 Update

Election Update

vote here

Maricopa County is expecting historic voter turnout with nearly 2.6 million voters eligible to participate. Maricopa County has already seen an increase in early ballot returns, with over 40 percent of early ballots requested already returned. The Maricopa County Elections Department began counting early ballots this week, with more than 933,395 ballots processed and ready for tabulation. The Election Department is estimating that it will surpass 1 million early ballots returned later today.  The county has mailed over 2 million ballots, and more than 39,000 voters have already chosen to vote in person.

Thanks to a 2019 law that allows ballot counting two weeks prior to Election Day and upgraded tabulation equipment, Maricopa County will be able to count more early ballots, and do it faster than in previous elections. The county’s new equipment, upgraded in 2019, includes features designed to improve efficiency, tabulation speed and security over the tabulation process.

If you’re planning to vote early, find a secure drop box or a Vote Center to cast your ballot in person at Locations.Maricopa.Vote. Drive through drop box locations open in the parking lots of 12 County sports facilities on Oct. 24th. Voters have until October 23rd by 5 p.m. to request a ballot in the mail at BeBallotReady.Vote

Remember you may track your ballot by texting "Join" to 628-683.

The Town of Cave Creek & the Small Projects Assistance Program

The Flood Control District has a program to help local cities solve small-scale flooding problems. The Small Projects Assistance Program (SPAP) allows cities and towns apply for up to $500,000 in funding to design and build smaller, localized solutions. The Board of Supervisors recently approved a project in District 2.

The County will partner with the Town of Cave Creek to stabilize the banks of Galloway Wash. This small project provides erosion protection to 27 structures that have suffered flooding during several storm events in 2018 and 2019.

Maricopa County Emergency Management Fire Fuel Reduction Project

MCDEM Fire Fuel Reduction Projcet


I wanted to share an update on the Maricopa County Department of Emergency Management (MCDEM) Fire Fuel Reduction Project that contractors completed last week. Utilizing a small grant made available by MCDEM, the Parks Department hired contractors to remove dead vegetation along the trail edges (6-10 ft). Contractors spent three days removing dead vegetation along the Metate and Spur Cross trails. They raked, weed whipped, bagged, and removed six full trailers of bagged dead invasive vegetation along the trail edges. Thank you to MCDEM and our Parks Department and to all who participated to help keep our community safe.
