Tuesday’s Special Election For Phoenix Mayor, City Council
A special election is taking place Tuesday in Phoenix. Voters will choose a new mayor and possibly two new Phoenix City council members.
The runoff election for mayor is between Kate Gallego and Daniel Valenzuela. The winner will serve the remainder of former Mayor Greg Stanton’s term that expires April 19, 2021.
Both mayoral candidates resigned as councilmembers to run for mayor and voters are also being asked to fill their former council seats.
Four candidates are on the ballot in District 5 which includes most of west Phoenix and seven are on the ballot in District 8 which includes part of downtown, south Phoenix and Laveen.
If no council candidate gets more than 50 percent of the vote a runoff election between the top two vote getters will take place in May.
