2015 City of Phoenix Elections

This summer the City of Phoenix is holding elections for Mayor and City Council Districts 1, 3, 5, and 7, which is shaping up to be the least competitive race in over a decade with only two of the five incumbents facing challengers.  A sharp contrast to just two years ago when there were 16 candidates running in the City Council election of 2013.

A major issue the City of Phoenix faces is voter turnout, with just 23.4 percent of registered voters casting ballots in the 2013 election, this year is expected to see much lower turnout due to the smaller pool of candidates. Early voting continues to be the most popular way Phoenix Residents cast their ballots.
