Early results show a resounding number of voters were against Prop 422; more than 90 percent

UPDATE (8:30 P.M.) - Early results released by the City of San Luis Tuesday night show 1,467 voters were against the property tax and only 126 voters were in favor of the property tax. The city says this includes early ballots that have been processed and counted as well as poll results from all the voting centers. Results become official once they're canvassed by the San Luis City Council.

UPDATE (7 P.M.) - Voting centers in San Luis, Arizona have closed at 7 p.m.

UPDATE (4 P.M.) - Voters have been casting their ballots since 6 a.m.

I spoke to some voters who are not in favor of Proposition 422.

“How am I not going to oppose what they are doing to us? Instead of being beneficial for me, as a retired person," explained Carmen Calzada Ramos, a voter in opposition to Prop 422.

“And I, as a citizen, can vote to defend my rights, and well, one vote makes a difference. But I say, I don’t think it’s fair for them to charge you tax upon tax," shared Ramon Valencia, a voter in opposition to Prop 422.

I also reached out to the committee in favor of Proposition 422 for comment but I have not heard back.

The voting centers close at 7 p.m., so San Luis residents have less than three hours to come out and vote at the San Luis Library or San Luis Medical Mall.

SAN LUIS, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - The City of San Luis is holding a Special Election on Tuesday, May 21, for residents to vote on Proposition 422.

Currently, San Luis, Arizona doesn’t have a property tax and this proposition, if passed, would require homeowners to pay between $200 and $500 annually based on their property’s value.

The city clerk, Sonia Cornelio, explained why San Luis, Arizona could use more funding, “Revenues received from state revenue sharing funds are very limited due to the city’s low population. Additionally, the city has rather low revenue generated by city sales tax due to the low number of businesses operating within city limits.”

The funds from the proposed property tax would be allocated to public works projects. “The mayor and city council intend that these limited monies will be used for the maintenance and/or upgrades to parks, open space, and public road infrastructure,” shared Cornelio.

Only San Luis, Arizona residents can vote in the Special Election.

If you would like to vote in person, the following voting centers are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday:

  • Yuma County Library San Luis Branch (1075 N. 6th Avenue, San Luis, AZ 85349)
  • San Luis Medical Mall (151 Oak Avenue, San Luis, AZ 85349)

A photo ID is required for voting in person.

Residents can also drop off their ballots at the Yuma County Library San Luis Branch and the Recorder's Office (102 S. Main Street, Yuma, Arizona 85364).
