The city of Phoenix will conduct a scheduled runoff election for voters in Council District 4 to elect a council member on Tuesday, Nov. 5. This election is required because no candidate for these offices received a majority of the votes in the August election. The top-two candidates in that election were Justin Johnson, with 4,196 votes, and Laura Pastor, with 4,030 votes.

The runoff election is open to Phoenix residents who are registered voters and reside within Council District 4. Voters who received a ballot by mail for the August election will receive a ballot by mail for the runoff election.

Voting centers will be used for this election. Any city voters may use any one of the 11 voting centers to cast a ballot. For voting convenience, the voting centers will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2; 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday, Nov. 4; and 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 5 (Election Day).

On Election Day, Nov. 5, Maricopa County also will conduct a special election for several school districts. There will be separate ballots for the two elections. City voters who do not vote by mail are encouraged to visit voting centers on Nov. 2 or Nov. 4 to vote in the runoff election because polling places for the school district elections will be different than the city’s voting centers on Election Day.

A list and map of the voting centers is available at and in the Sample Ballot Pamphlet. For more information, call the City Clerk Department at 602-261-VOTE (8683).
