Updated Election Counts: Stringer Increases Lead Over Davis

02 September 2016  
It appears that Darryl Croft will be the new Mayor of Chino Valley. An updated count of ballots show Chip Davis trailing David Stringer by more than 300 votes.

Of the 11,100 ballots that were outstanding, about 4000 were tabulated on Thursday afternoon. There are still approximately 7000 to process, which includes 2,959 with write-in candidates. Any time there is one or more write-in candidate on a ballot, the ballot must hand-processed by a committee of three persons. Although many of the candidates written in are not officially recognized, such as Mickey Mouse, the ballot still requires individual processing.


In Yavapai County, the LD1 race for State Representative continues to be very tight. Stringer leads by only 9 votes in Yavapai County, but the legislative district is not bound by county lines. Adding in the votes from Maricopa County increases his lead to more than 300.
