PHOENIX — The primary election held Tuesday decided the races for mayor across several cities and towns in Maricopa County.

About a dozen municipalities either chose a new mayor or decided to retain the current mayor, some of which ran unopposed.

Here’s a roundup of mayoral results across the county:

Carefree: Vice Mayor John Crane was elected as mayor, beating out Peter Sample.

Cave Creek: Bob Morris led Eileen Wright as of Thursday’s drop. Morris has been a city councilman for the past three years.

Chandler: Kevin Hartke retained his position, earning 77% of votes compared to Ruth Jones’ 23%.

El Mirage: Alexis Hermosillo ran unopposed and will continue being the mayor of the West Valley city.

Fountain Hills: Ginny Dickey held a slight lead over Joe Arpaio as of Wednesday. Arpaio is the 90-year-old former Phoenix metro sheriff who was ousted in 2016 by voters frustrated with his headline-grabbing tactics and legal troubles. Dickey is a Democrat serving her second term as mayor.

Goodyear: Joe Pizzillo ran unopposed and will continue being Goodyear’s mayor. He was appointed to the role in December following the death of Georgia Lord.

Guadalupe: Valerie Molina ran unopposed and will remain the town’s mayor.

Litchfield Park: Thomas Schoaf retained his position after running unopposed.

Paradise Valley: Mayor Jerry Bien-Willner was leading challenger Julie Pace as of Thursday evening.

Queen Creek: Councilmember Julia Wheatley ran unopposed and will be the town’s next mayor.

Youngtown: Mayor Michael LeVault ran unopposed.
