Some updates on Tuesday's election results...

...In a close race in Tempe, Mark Mitchell has pulled ahead of Michael Monti in the race for mayor.  On Tuesday night, Monti was ahead by three votes; tonight, Mitchell is ahead by 277.  Either way however, it's going to a May runoff election.

Also going to a runoff:  Kolby Granville and Dick Foreman for a seat on the city council.  Incumbents Corey Woods and Joel Navarro retained their seats outright, but neither Granville nor Foreman were named on more than 50% of the ballots cast.

...Regarding the ballot questions in Scottsdale, all passed except for the approval of the city's updated General Plan.  It was defeated by 1064 votes.

...In Fountain Hills, incumbent Town Council member Henry Leger easily survived a recall election, receiving more than twice the number of votes of his tea party challenger.

...All results from Maricopa County are here.
