Election News


 Candidate packets will be available beginning January 5

The City of Show Low will hold a primary election on Tuesday, July 30, 2024, in conjunction with the county election, for the purpose of electing the Mayor and three Council Members to fill four-year terms. A general election will be held on Tuesday, November 5, to fill any seats that remain unfilled after the primary election.

 Anyone interested in running for a council seat must be 18 years of age at the time of the primary election, be a qualified elector residing within the City of Show Low at the time of the election and have resided within the city for one year preceding the election. The Mayor and Council members are non-partisan and serve at large (that is, they represent all citizens, not a specific area or district of the city).

 Candidate nomination packets for anyone wishing to run for the mayor or city council will be available beginning Friday, January 5, at Show Low City Hall, 180 N. 9th Street. The filing period for candidate nomination papers begins March 4, 2024, and ends April 1, 2024 (no later than 5:00 p.m.). Contact the clerk's office at (928) 532-4061 or (928) 532-4060 for more information or to schedule an appointment to pick up a candidate packet.

When are elections held?

Regular city elections are held in the fall of even-numbered years and are consolidated with federal, state, and county elections. In 2024, the Primary Election will be held on Tuesday, July 30, and the General Election (if one is needed for the city) will be on Tuesday, November 5. 

What’s on the ballot?

At the July 30 Primary Election, voters will select candidates for Mayor and three Council seats, all for four-year terms.  (Note: A city General Election will be held only if the seats are not filled at the Primary.)

Where do I vote?

Show Low voters must cast their ballot at a polling place. Voters may choose to vote at either of the following polling locations:
 - City Campus gymnasium, 620 E. McNeil
 - Timber Mesa Fire and Medical District, 3561 E. Deuce of Clubs

If you prefer having your ballot mailed directly to you rather than going to the polling location, register with Navajo County to receive an “early” ballot. If you moved since registering or your mailing address has changed, the ballot will not be forwarded per state law. To be placed on the early ballot list, to check your address or to be placed on the permanent early voting list, call voter registration at (800) 668-3867 or (928) 524-4192.
