Three candidates file signatures for three seats on Prescott Valley Council
Ten residents pulled packets for the Town of Prescott Valley’s upcoming elections, but only three returned the required number of signatures by the April 4 deadline.
Incumbent Mayor Kell Palguta turned in 1006 signatures of a required 579, incumbent Councilmember Kendall Schumacher collected 707 signatures, and new candidate Michael Greer, gathered 623.
Greer is running to fill the seat that will be vacated by Councilmember Don Packard, who is not running again. No petition signature challenges were filed by the deadline of April 18.
The three candidates will be on the ballot for the Primary election on August 2, and though there are only two seats for Town Council and one for Mayor, all three candidates must still receive the majority of votes per the State’s majority vote formula. If elected, the three would be sworn in at the December 8, 2022, Council meeting and take their seats in January 2023.
Yavapai County will add another early voting site in Prescott Valley this year, in the Civic Center’s third floor lobby. Additionally, the Town will move its ballot box in the Civic Center sidewalk to the parking lot, allowing for access on either side to make it easier to drop off ballots.
Voter registration deadline for the Primary Election is 5 p.m. on July 5, 2022. Early voting begins the following day, July 6, 2022, and early ballots will be mailed on that day. Citizens can register to vote by visiting www.my.arizona.vote.
If a computer is not available in your household, the Prescott Valley Town Clerk’s office has voter registration forms that will need to be submitted to the County Registrar of Voters Office either by mail or in person drop-off. The Registrar of Voters Office address is 1015 Fair St. Prescott, Arizona 86305.
