A Special Election will be held on Tuesday, Aug. 25, asking Chandler voters to decide on an amendment to the City Charter. Proposition 484 would amend the Charter to formalize Chandler’s cycle of August and November elections in even-numbered years and January commencement dates for the offices of Mayor and Councilmember. This has been Chandler’s election schedule since 2008 and will conform to recent changes to state law.
This Special Election will be conducted entirely by mail-in ballot. No voting will take place at the polls. Each registered voter will be sent a ballot by mail beginning Wednesday, July 29. Each household with a registered voter also has received a publicity pamphlet in the mail. The pamphlet may be viewed online at chandleraz.gov/elections

Voters are advised to allow sufficient time to mail their ballot in as all ballots must be received no later than 7 p.m. on Election Day, Aug. 25.
