Petition to Incorporate Glendale

On 15 April 1910, a petition was filed calling for an election of qualified voters of Glendale, Arizona to incorporate their town. Antonio Campuzano was one of the signatories, along with a large number of names that are becoming familiar as associated with the Liga Protectora Latina. This document was found on the Maricopa County Recorders Office website.

On 4 June 1910 the special election was held, and the result was a vote in favor of incorporation for Glendale. There are a large number of names on this document who signed the petition in favor of incorporation.
