Phoenix Election Officials Will Unveil The City's Next Mayor Tonight

Many Phoenix voters have already cast a ballot. Some, perhaps even twice.

For those of you who haven't, today is the day.

Don't forget that Phoenix is now using voting centers, which have replaced the traditional polling places.

The Maricopa County Elections Department, which is running school district elections in Phoenix, however, is still using those traditional polling sites.

Find a Phoenix polling center near you.

A little confusing,  yes.

And it means that some Phoenix voters will have to make two stops, but city officials say that using polling centers saves taxpayers' money.
Phoenix residents can hit any one of the city's 26 voting centers to cast a ballot until 7 p.m. today to cast a ballot for mayor and two City Council seats.
A final rundown of your options --
In the mayor's race: Wes Gullett and Greg Stanton.
City Council District 1: Councilwoman Thelda Williams is defending her seat against challenger Eric Frederick.
City Council District 5: Brenda Sperduti and Daniel Valenzuela are vying for the seat vacated by Councilman Claude Mattox when he ran, unsuccessfully, for Phoenix mayor.
Results will be posted here beginning at 8 p.m.
