PHOENIX — Voters across Maricopa County cast their ballots in local elections that concluded Tuesday.

While there were no candidates up for election this year, voters in five Valley cities and 23 school districts answered bond questions, overrides and budget-related items. In addition, Litchfield Park residents voted on whether to adopt a city charter and elect 14 members to the Board of Freeholders to guide the charter.

The “all-mail” jurisdictional elections started Oct. 11, with in-person voting available at polling places across metro Phoenix for the last week. The polls closed at 7 p.m. on Election Day.

The results from nearly 400,000 ballots received through Sunday (representing about 21% of the 1.9 million eligible voters) were released Nov. 7. The final results were released Tuesday.
