Are you looking for an exciting running event to take part in? Look no further than the XTERRA San Tan Trail Run, which is set to take place on Sunday, November 13th in Maricopa County, Arizona. This annual event includes a 52 km, 31 km, 20 km, 10 km, and 6 km trail race. It's sure to be an amazing day of competition and camaraderie!In addition to the XTERRA San Tan Trail Run, there are several other races taking place in Maricopa County. The race for Maricopa County prosecutor includes the current incumbent, Republican Rachel Mitchell, and Democratic challenger Julie Gunnigle.
There are also two seats in the Maricopa County Special Health Care District that are subject to a vote, but neither will be in November. Jeff Fine is running unopposed for Clerk of the Superior Court. Voters in Maricopa County had the option to vote by mail, mailbox or in person before election day. On election day itself, 223 polling centers were open across the county. It's estimated that around 250,000 people voted in person on Election Day.
The county began processing those ballots on Wednesday, as well as the ballots issued and deposited in secure boxes or door 3 of the tabulator at voting centers affected by problems with voting machines. The results were followed from Maricopa County until approximately 2 in the morning. However, it could take days to determine the winners in close races. As of Wednesday morning, about 1.8 million votes had been counted across the state. The subsequent results were released Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning. Arizona counties released the results of the elections throughout the day on Wednesday.
The next release of Maricopa County results is scheduled for Wednesday night. Based on data received Sunday morning, the return rate on ballots was different for Democrats and Republicans across the state. Of the Democrats who called for early voting, 39% had already voted. Of the Republicans who requested early votes, 36% had voted so far. For the self-employed and others, the rate of return was 24.5%.
In recent election cycles, the first round of results has tended to lean towards Democrats because Republicans are more likely to deliver their ballots on election day or to vote in person at the polls. In recent days, some Republican candidates and leading party figures have continued to raise doubts about early voting. The AP can call a state or U. S. center election by the House of Representatives in which the margin between the first two candidates is 0.5% or less if the advantage is determined to be too great for a mandatory recount to change the result. AP will review those contests later in the week to confirm that there aren't enough votes left to count which could change the outcome.
A new Arizona law means that even once county officials have released the full results, elections may not be completely over. Senate Bill 1008 expanded the margin for activating an automatic count between candidates or bills to 0.5% or less of the number of votes cast. Any counts that are activated for the next election will be done after county and state officials certify the results, in accordance with state law. Before performing a count, county and state officials will double-check the accuracy of county tabulators. Subsequently, as in initial count, election workers will count by hand a statistically significant number of ballots in each affected contest. So mark your calendars for Sunday November 13th and join us at XTERRA San Tan Trail Run! It's sure to be an incredible day of competition and camaraderie!.
