    A History of Secure, Transparent Elections

    Pima County is committed to the integrity of its elections and has engaged in extensive and ongoing election security and transparency efforts. This webpage has been created to provide a history of the efforts county staff have made to ensure the elections results of Pima County are verifiably accurate. These efforts have primarily been chronicled in memoranda to the Board of Supervisors by Pima County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry, as well as correspondence to local and state elections officials by Mr. Huckelberry and others. 

    Links to all of those documents can be found in the tabs at the bottom of this page. In addition, Mr. Huckelberry has written the following memorandum to the Board summarizing the county's efforts over the past eight years to protect the security and integrity of your vote.
