Access Requirements to Property

Before a property owner can use a piece of property that can impact another or obtain a building permit, there must be an ability to access that parcel. 5.4 Legal Access (PDF) can be found in the Graham County Zoning Ordinance or contact Planning and Zoning at 928-428-0410.

Absentee Ballots

Arizona no longer uses absentee voting because you don’t have to be absent to vote early. However, many people still refer to early voting as absentee voting. Contact the Graham County Recorder for more information or take a look at our Early Voting Information brochure (PDF).

Animal Surveillance

During warm weather, Environmental Health Staff collect mosquitoes using specialized traps. Mosquito specimens are sent to the ADHS Laboratory to determine if they carry certain viruses that can affect humans. These viruses include West Nile Virus, St. Louis Encephalitis and Western Equine Encephalitis.

Wild animals may also be tested to determine if they are carrying disease, i.e., Rabies. Animals that are thought to be potentially rabid and that come into contact with humans are forwarded to the State Lab for testing. Test results can usually be received within a few days. Residents are especially cautioned to beware of any contact with bats or skunks, since there have been a number of rabid bats and skunks submitted within the last few years. Residents having any questions regarding coming into contact with potentially rabid animals, or who want to report unusually aggressive animal behavior are encouraged to visit this related Health / Disease page or call the Health Department at 928-428-1962.

Appraisals

The purpose of appraisals generated by the Graham County Assessor’s Office is to estimate the market value for valorem tax purposes only.
