• General Information


    In May 2023, the Governing Board of the Glendale Elementary School District (GESD) called for an election in November 2023 for voters living within GESD boundaries to decide on four election initiatives: 


    Continuation of a Maintenance and Operations Budget Override 

    District Additional Assistance Budget Override

    Capital Improvement Bond

    Sale, lease, or exchange of district property


    GESD created a detailed plan for what these ballot initiatives support, including continuing full-day Kindergarten and Specialized Programs including Arts, Music, and P.E., enhancing safety and security, maintaining schools and addressing critical maintenance needs.


    This is a mail-in-only election and all registered voters can vote.

    The deadline to register to vote is October 10, 2023. The Maricopa County Elections Department will begin mailing ballots to all registered voters on October 11, 2023. All ballots must be received by Election Day, November 7, 2023.
