County Supervisors approve record-setting vote

Scott Orr
Special to the Review

The Yavapai County Board of Supervisors on Monday canvassed the results of the county's Nov. 6 election results, making them official, and agreed to a hearing to make a part of Big Chino Road in Paulden a county highway.

County Elections Director Lynn Constabile said the county had set three records this election cycle: turnout among registered voters, which was the highest in the state at 81.5 percent; most provisional ballots received, and early ballots mailed.

"More of our voters decided that the early ballot was right for them," she said, "even though our lines only reached one hour, which is the average, and that was only at the peak times."

So many people chose early ballots, she said, that just 28 percent of the voters actually cast their ballots on Election Day.

"In this country, our (voter) percentages are so low compared to other countries', I'm proud the people of Yavapai County appreciate the right they have to vote," said Supervisor Carol Springer.

The board also accepted a petition to designate a part of Big Chino Road a county highway. Residents asked that a short section, just over a mile, in Paulden be paved.

"Before the county changes a road from a dirt surface to a permanent surface, we have to establish it as a county highway," Public Works Director Byron Jaspers said. "This is done a by petition signed by ten people from the area, and then it goes to a hearing."

Supervisor Chip Davis asked if a fairly sharp curve on one end of the road was a problem.

"We might do some work down in the southern portion," Jaspers said. "There's kind of a tight curve in there, and we may want to work with the property owners on sight distances."

The board approved the hearing, to be held in Paulden at 10 a.m. on Dec 12.
