The polls closed last night at 7 p.m. for many city elections across Arizona. This doesn’t mean that the city election season is over though. In most cases for these elections, a candidate must receive more than 50% of the vote in order to be declared the winner. If no candidate receives this much, a run-off election is scheduled typically for November. For example, in the Phoenix Mayor race, there were six candidates. Wes Gullet and Greg Stanton received the most votes, but neither crossed the 50% mark, so they will face off on November 8.
Center for Arizona Policy surveyed candidates in Phoenix, Tucson, and Prescott and posted their responses to out Voter Guide website, azvoterguide.com. Here are the election results from these cities:
