Tuesday, Nov. 5, (Election Day) is the last day for registered voters in Council Districts 4 and 8 to cast a ballot for the runoff election. All of the 11 voting centers around the city will be open on Election Day from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The election is open to Phoenix residents who are registered voters and reside within Districts 4 or 8 at least 29 days prior to the election. Residents may visit phoenix.gov/mayorcouncil/mydistrict or call 602-261-VOTE (8683) to find out which district they reside in.
Phoenix voters who have not yet mailed their early ballot can vote the ballot, place it in a signed affidavit envelope and drop it off at any voting center location. These voters also have the option to cast a ballot in person at any voting center. A list and map of voting center locations are available online at phoenix.gov/elections. Also available online is an interactive application that will show voters the voting center closest to them along with the volume of voter activity at each site.
Voters also may call the Voter Hotline at 602-261-VOTE (8683) or TTY/602-534-2737. The hotline will be staffed to assist voters with information about the election or voting center locations.
As a reminder, Maricopa County also will be conducting special elections for school districts within the city of Phoenix on Tuesday, Nov. 5 (Election Day). There are separate ballots for the two elections. Voters may vote by mail or at the polls for either election.
The school district election conducted by Maricopa County will be a traditional polling place election, which requires voters who vote at the polls to go to their designated polling place. The polling places will be open on Tuesday, Nov. 5 (Election Day).
Most polling places for the County’s school district election on Tuesday, Nov. 5, (Election Day) will be different than the city’s voting centers. City of Phoenix voters who intend to vote at the polls are encouraged to visit any of the 11 voting centers on Saturday, Nov. 2, or Monday, Nov. 4, to vote in the city’s runoff election.
Unofficial election results will be available online shortly after 8 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 5, at phoenix.gov, with one additional unofficial update by approximately 11 p.m. The results also will be available on Phoenix’s cable television station, PHX11.
The 8 p.m. unofficial results will include the majority of early ballots received through Saturday, Nov. 2, and ballots cast at voting centers on Saturday, Nov. 2, and Monday, Nov. 4. The 11 p.m. update will include votes cast at voting center locations on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 5.
The unofficial results will not include provisional ballots or early ballots received on Monday, Nov. 4, and Tuesday, Nov. 5. The next tabulation update will be by 5:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 8, and will include additional early ballots and provisional ballots.
