Names Drawn To Determine Order on Ballot for Goodyear Spring Election

Names were drawn today at Goodyear City Hall to determine the order candidates will appear on the ballot for the March 12 election. Three city council seats are up for election. The candidates will appear in the following order:

Bill Stipp
Laura Kaino
Tamara Floyd
Sheri Lauritano

State statutes and city charter require that names be drawn to determine the order they will appear on the ballot. Potential candidates were required to submit petitions by December 12 to be placed on the ballot.

For the upcoming election, in addition to candidates, voters will choose whether the city should move the regular election to the fall of even years. In addition, the election will determine if only votes for the subject office should be used to determine the majority of votes cast for a given office. The spring election will also determine if the induction of the Mayor and Council members should be moved from April to the month following the general election.

The last day to register to vote, and make any changes such as address changes to registrations, is February 11, 2019.

This is an all-mail ballot and ballots will be delivered to voters at the address on their registrations. A publicity pamphlet will be mailed to households in February and will be available on the City Clerk’s website.
