In virtually all the Northwest Valley, the notion of another election is still months away. Peoria voters don’t face their next regularly scheduled balloting until August 2016, but in the city’s sprawling northernmost district – the Mesquite District – voters can weigh in as early as today in their next City Council contest.

The district’s 11,882 registered voters signed up for early balloting can begin marking their choices between top primary vote-getter Bridget Binsbacher and Council appointee Ben Toma, and have until March 10 to return those ballots.
