The ballots

Mesa: Voters are being asked two tax questions — one to increase the city sales tax, the other to create a primary property tax. There are also two propositions to amend the city charter — one to eliminate the need to “introduce” a zoning ordinance at City Council meetings, the other to create a council-appointed auditor position to review city programs and services.

Chandler: Three candidates — Trinity Donovan, Becky Jackson and Jeff Weninger — vie for two City Council seats.

Tempe: Two candidates — incumbent Len Copple and challenger Onnie Shekerjian — battle for a City Council seat. Voters also will decide five bond issues — water and sewer improvements, streets, law enforcement, fire protection, and park and library upgrades — totaling $210 million.

Queen Creek: Two candidates — incumbent Vice Mayor Jon Wootten and Monte Nevitt — seek a seat on the Town Council. The election is by all-mail ballots, which must be received by 7 p.m. today.
