Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio
Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is trailing his opponent in the race to be Fountain Hill’s mayor.
The former sheriff said during the late night hours of August 2 that the vote totals so far came from early ballots, and he was awaiting the totals of in-person voting.
If Arpaio loses in the mayoral election, it would mark his fourth electoral defeat in recent years.
(A.P. Report) Voters on the vast Navajo Nation have advanced tribal presidential candidates Jonathan Nez and Buu Nygren to the general election in November.

The question now, in terms of the ballot counting process, is what happens from here on out?
According to a statement released by the Maricopa County Elections Department, they will publish in-person Election Day results as they are returned from each of the 210 Vote Centers throughout the night. They estimate 106,000 ballots were cast in person on Aug. 2.
“Starting Wednesday, August 3, the Elections Department will begin to sign verify and process the early ballots dropped off on Monday and at the polls today. We’ll update unofficial results daily by 7:00 pm until all verified ballots are counted. We ‘ll also provide a daily update of the estimated ballots left to count,” read a portion of the statement.
Elections counting officials say they can’t complete until after the Aug. 9 statutory deadline for the following:
- Conditional Provisional Ballots, cast by voters who did not provide sufficient ID when voting in-person.
- Questionable Signatures, or ballots cast by voters whose early ballot signature were questioned. Those voters have a chance to cure the signature issue.
