Elections are a fundamental part of our democratic process and the Town of Gila Bend proudly promotes citizen participation and aims to provide voters with access to information and opinion. The Town of Gila Bend holds State, Legislative, Local and Special Elections.
As mandated by law, both the Town Clerk and the Deputy Town Clerk have been certified by Maricopa County to conduct municipal elections for the Town. Both attend the required annual elections training to stay up-to-date on newly enacted and any upcoming legislation. The Town Clerk's Office works with the Arizona Secretary of State's office to verify initiatives, referenda for the ballot, and certify official results of said elections.
Arizona law pertaining to elections can be found in Title 16 and Title 19 of the Arizona Revised Statutes.
