You must live there to vote Tuesday

The special election to determine whether Golden Valley will become incorporated takes place on Tuesday.

Polling places are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. in all five precincts included in the proposed incorporation area.

The boundaries run roughly from the corner of Adobe Road and Shinarump Drive on the south, then west to the corner of Shinarump and Egar Road, then north to Carmen Road, then east to U.S. 93, south along Route 93 to Chinle Road, west to Adobe Road and south to the corner of Shinarump and Adobe.

Having an address along the boundary roads isn't enough to qualify a voter in this election.

The only ones who will be voting on Tuesday are those who live inside the boundaries.

They also must have registered to vote before Aug. 13 and voters must cast their ballots in the precinct where they reside.

If they have any questions about their precinct or where to go to vote, they can call the Voter Registration office at 753-0767.

Those who plan to vote should take their voter registration cards and photo identification to the polls.

Absentee ballots must be returned to the Voter Registration office by 5 p.m. on election night, or they can be turned in at any of the polling places the day of the election.

Voters still can cast early ballots until Friday. To vote early, qualified registered voters can go the Voter Registration office in the county administration complex at 700 W. Beale St. in Kingman and ask for an early ballot.

They will vote then and there, so they will need their voter registration card and a photo ID.

The elections department and Voter Registration office will have a large screen on the first floor at the county administration building on the evening of Sept. 11.

The public and media are welcome to come and watch the ballots being counted and updated as the action occurs. Results will start rolling in at about 8 p.m.

Those with home computers have the option of watching the ballot counting at the county Elections Department Web site, www.co.mohave.az.us.

The same Web site offers instruction on using the new electronic voting machines.
