SRP Elections to Fill Seats on Boards, Councils

SRP on Tuesday, April 5, will hold its 2022 elections to fill 24 seats on the board and council of the Salt River Project Agricultural Improvement and Power District, 22 seats on the board and council of the Salt River Valley Water Users’ Association, plus the positions of President and Vice President.

The newly elected officials will take office May 2 and 3 following the canvassing of election returns on April 11.

Qualified voters may vote in person through Election Day, April 5, at the SRP Voting Center, located at the SRP Administration Building, 1500 N. Mill Ave., in Tempe.  The SRP Voting Center will be open weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Monday, April 4 and from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 5.

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.

The terms of SRP President, Vice President and Board and Council seats are all four years. SRP board members establish policy, approve annual budgets, and set prices and fees.  SRP council members amend and enact bylaws and make appointments to fill vacancies on the SRP boards, councils or position of Vice President.

District positions open for election in 2022 are President, Vice President, one position on the Board of Directors in each of voting divisions 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10; two at-large Board of Director positions, 12 and 14; and three positions on the Council in each of voting divisions 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10. All District positions have four-year terms.

The two at-large District board positions (12 and 14) are elected on a one-landowner, one-vote basis. 

Association positions open for election in 2022 are President, Vice President, one position on the Board of Governors in each of voting districts 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10; and three positions on the Council in each of voting districts 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10. All Association positions have four-year terms.

To be eligible to vote, District and Association electors must be the owner of qualified land, or an individual who has been appointed by the trustee(s) to vote qualified land held in a qualifying trust. In addition, District electors must be a qualified, registered Arizona voter and reside within the state of Arizona. Association electors must also be at least 18 years of age.

Early voting ballots must be received through the U.S. Postal Service or hand-delivered to the SRP Voting Center or one of the designated drop-off locations no later than 7 p.m. on Election Day, April 5, to be counted. Two additional early ballot drop‐off-only locations, open only on Election Day, are located at the SRP West Valley Service Center, 221 N. 79th Ave., in Tolleson; and the SRP Southside Water Service Center, 3160 S. Alma School Road, in Mesa.
