On May 9, 2017, the Governor of Arizona signed the City’s Charter amendment relating to candidate contribution limits (Proposition 485, approved by the voters in March 2016).  The City of Tempe’s campaign contribution limits are now in effect, as detailed in Ordinance No. O2015.51 which became effective upon approval of the Charter Amendment.  NOTE: At the August 17, 2017, City Council meeting, the City Council adopted Ordinance No. O2017.42, amending the City of Tempe Candidate Contribution Limits, and adding a requirement for committees to disclose contributions made by  a lobbyist registered with the City of Tempe.  Candidates are advised to seek their own legal advice concerning limitations on and use of campaign contribution limits; the City Clerk’s Office cannot render legal, financial or other professional advice. 

Updated information concerning City elections will be posted on this webpage as it becomes available.
