Pima County Elections Dept. has issued the final tally (from what I hear from various candidates), so here’s the latest wrap up, after counting of all Early and Provisional ballots. See: https://results.arizona.vote/#/pimacounty/18/11

Voter turnout was 82.45%.

Pima County Supervisor District 1 is now going to be represented by a Democrat, Rex Scott. He won by 730 votes (not enough for a recount, which would be less than 50 vote difference). Current D 1 Supervisor Ally Miller (R) is stepping down after 2 terms.   Three of the other Supervisors are Democrats (incumbent Sharon Bronson (D3) with newcomers Dr. Matt Heinz (D 2) and Adelita Grijalva (D 5), also remaining on the TUSD Governing Bd.) Incumbent Supervisor Steve Christy (R) retained his seat in District 4.

The rest of Pima County offices will be dominated by Democrats, except for Treasurer incumbent Beth Ford (R) who was losing on Election Night, but that race flipped last Friday and Ford won by 5870 votes.  Former Sheriff Democrat Chris Nanos upset incumbent one term Sheriff Mark Napier (R) in a rematch, by 3431 votes.

Recorder-elect Gabriella Cazares-Kelly will be the first Native American elected to a Pima County office.

PCC Governing Bd. District 1 will be represented by half Japanese American Catherine Ripley, former E.D. of the Pima County Democratic Party. She also ran for LD 10 House two years ago in the Dem primary.

TUSD Governing Bd. will also be more diverse ethnically, with the election of Natalie Luna Rose (Hispanic), Dr. Ravi Grivois-Shah (Indian/Asian and gay) and Sadie Shaw (Black). They join Adelita Grijalva and Leila Counts on the non-partisan voluntary board.

For the Federal races and  State Legislative Districts, go to www.azsos.gov.  LD 2, 3, 9, 10 remain in Democratic hands, with LD 11 and 14 in Republican hands.  Most of the incumbents were re-elected.  On the state level, Tolleson Mayor/Democrat Anna Tovar was elected to the Arizona Corporation Commission, along with two Republicans incumbent Lea Marquez Peterson and James O’Connor.  The ACC will still be Republican dominated 3-2. The other Democrat is Sandra Kennedy, elected in Nov. 2018.

Congratulations to all the winners. Thank you for everyone’s patience in awaiting these final results.
