    Pima County will begin accepting pro or con arguments for the 2015 bond election Publicity Pamphlet beginning May 18. Arguments will be accepted through 5 p.m., June 5.

    The Publicity Pamphlet will be mailed to county registered voter households in September prior to the start of early voting, as state law requires. It will contain each bond proposition as it will appear on the ballot and arguments for and against the propositions. The pamphlet will be published in English and Spanish.

    Arguments must be submitted in writing either in person or by mail and can’t be longer than 300 words. The writer (or writers, if more than one author) must provide their full name, address and phone number and pay $100 per argument to offset the cost of printing and mailing. Only cash, check or money order made out to Pima County Elections Department will be accepted. Addresses and phone numbers are for county verification purposes only and will not be published in the pamphlet.

    Arguments must be specific to a proposition and include the proposition number. General Arguments applying to all propositions will not be accepted unless the writer pays $700 to have the argument published with each proposition.

    The propositions, titles and their estimated cost are:
    • Prop. 425 – Road and Highway Improvements: $200 million
    • Prop. 426 – Economic Development, Libraries and Workforce Training: $91.4 million
    • Prop.427 – Tourism Promotion: $98.6 million
    • Prop. 428 – Parks and Recreation: $191.5 million
