SRP is composed of two separate organizations: the Salt River Valley Water Users' Association, a private water corporation formed in 1903; and the Salt River Project Agricultural Improvement and Power District, an agricultural improvement district and a political subdivision of the State of Arizona formed in 1937 that oversees SRP’s electric operations.
Each company of SRP is governed separately. The Association and District both lie within the overall boundary of the Salt River Reservoir District and are divided into 10 geographical voting areas. The Association is divided into 10 voting districts and the District is divided into 10 voting divisions.
Results from Tuesday’s election become official after a canvass by the SRP boards at their next meetings on Monday, April 11. The newly elected officials will take office May 2 and 3. The unofficial 2022 election results are available on the SRP Elections website at www.srp.net/results.
