Vail, AZ (June 26, 2013) – Pima County election officials confirmed that Vail incorporation will be placed on the ballot on November 5, 2013. Only Vail residents that live within the proposed town boundaries are eligible to vote on the incorporation. If successful, Vail would be Arizona’s 92nd town/city following Tusayan which was incorporated in March 2010.
To incorporate a potential town or city in Arizona, ten percent of the registered voters living within the proposed town or city boundary must sign a petition supporting the referendum. Vail needed 717 valid signatures to qualify. According to the election officials, 1,027 were validated, 43% more than was required. On election day, a simple majority of Vail voters must approve the measure in order for the Town of Vail to be formed.
