QCUSD Encourages Voter Participation

Large voting box on wheels

In the Queen Creek Unified School District (QCUSD), we teach our students the importance of civic responsibility, one of our great American values. As educators, it is our duty to ensure that every student leaves our schools with the knowledge, skills, and passion to be an active and engaged citizen. We instill these values in students through programs like participatory budgeting and through our social studies curriculum. As with all lessons, we encourage parents and community members to model behavior that will prepare our students to achieve excellence through leadership.

This month, our community will be called to exercise their civic responsibility by considering a bond and an override continuation. This election will impact all QCUSD schools and faculty. 

In 2021, only 26 percent of registered voters cast ballots in the all-mail election. In 2022, that number increased to 64 percent during the midterm elections, but the United States still remains in the bottom half compared to other nations when it comes to voter participation. 

We encourage all members of QCUSD and the wider Queen Creek community to participate in the 2023 bond and override continuation election and let their voices be heard.

Voters should have received their ballot by mail. The deadline to mail back ballots has passed, but if you have not turned in your ballot you may visit one of two ballot drop off boxes located at the QCUSD District Office or at Eastmark High School. In-person voting is available at the QCUSD District Office now through Election Day.
