Incorporation question to be settled Tuesday

Primary also to decide who vies for Renzi’s seat

Next Tuesday is decision day on the question of Tusayan incorporation.

Early voting is available today and tomorrow at the Grand Canyon School Office on Boulder Street in the park.

The primary will also narrow the field of Democratic and Republican challengers for Republican Rick Renzi's seat in the House of Representatives. There are four Democrats - Ann Kirkpatrick, Howard Shanker, Mary Kim Titla and Jeffrey Brown. There are also four Republicans - Barry Hall, Thomas Noble Hansen, Sydney Hay and Sandra Livingstone.

The winners in the primary will run against Independent Brent Maupin.

Voting for Tusayan and Valle residents will be at the Grand Hotel, and for park residents, it will be at the Shrine of the Ages.

Only voters within the proposed incorporation boundaries will be able to vote on Tusayan incorporation.

Polls are open from 6 a.m.-7 p.m.

Voters must bring one accepted form of photo ID or two approved forms of non-photo ID.

Valid photo ID includes driver's license, tribal enrollment card or government issued identification card, if the address matches what's listed on the voter roll.

For those without a photo ID, any two of these are acceptable - a utility bill or bank statement with address dated within 90 days of the election, valid Arizona vehicle registration, Indian census card, voter registration card or any official election mailing with your name and address.

Those without identification may still vote by provisional ballot and will have three business days following the election to present valid ID to the county recorder.

Voters who have moved but not updated their voter registration must go to their new polling place and vote by provisional ballot that will be verified by elections officials.
