Today is Primary Day in Tucson
Republican-turned-Democrat Ward 6 Councilmember, Steve Kozachik, is running unopposed.
TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Today is Primary Election Day for the City of Tucson.
There are no contested races for City Council Wards 3, 5, and 6 this year. In the November 5 General Election, two wards are facing contenders.
Steve Kozachik (formerly R, now D) is seeking re-election to a second term. He is running unopposed.
There are just a few voting locations. Voters who forgot to mail in their ballots can drop them off on Election Day from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Voting locations are:
- Donna R. Liggins Recreation Center, 2160 N. Sixth Avenue
- El Pueblo Senior Center, 101 W. Irvington Road
- City of Tucson Parks and Recreation Administration, 900 S. Randolph Way
- Tucson City Clerks Elections Center, 800 E. 12th Street
There was a ruling earlier this month regard Tucson's odd year elections. Pima County Superior Court Judge James Marner ruled Phoenix and Tucson will NOT have to comply with a state law taking effect in 2014 that will require local governments to move their candidate elections to even-numbered years to coincide with statewide contests for president and governor. That means City Councilmembers elected this year will serve their normal 2-year terms. City Councilmembers and the Mayor who are up for re-election in 2015 will still have to run, instead of getting an extra year tacked on to their terms.
