City, primary elections are Tuesday

August 28, 2018

BULLHEAD CITY — Bullhead City voters will chose a mayor and could elect two city council members today.

While it is a primary election for most offices, it is a decisive election for the nonpartisan mayor and city council races. Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Four polling places are available to Bullhead City Precinct 211 voters: Desert Shores Community Baptist Church at 2625 Landon Drive,

Seventh-Day Adventist Church at 1752 Arriba Drive, Hope United Methodist Church at 1325 Ramar Road and St. John Lutheran Church at 1664 Central Ave.

Incumbent Tom Brady and former council member Jerry Duvall are vying for the city’s top elected office.

Four candidates are running for two seats on the Bullhead City Council. Incumbents Steve D’Amico and Annette Wegmann face challengers Norma Brummett and Gerald Ross. The top two vote-getters who receive more than 50 percent of the total votes cast — voters can cast ballots for up to two candidates — will be elected. If only one candidate meets that threshold, he

or she will occupy one of the seats and the other three candidates will appear on the ballot for the November general election.

Lois Wakimoto and Ron Gould face off in the Republican primary for Wakitmoto’s Mohave County District 5 supervisor’s seat. With no Democrat declared for the position, the winner of today’s primary will be elected. District 5 is composed of Fort Mohave, Mohave Valley, Topock/Golden Shores and the northern part of Lake Havasu City.

Voters will have choices to make in several statewide, legislative and federal races.

Among the races of interest is the GOP primary for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated with the retirement of Jeff Flake. Martha McSally, Kelli Ward and Joe Arpaio are running for the Republican nomination. On the Democratic side, Kyrsten Sinema faces Deedra Aboud.

Four candidates are running in the Republican primary for two seats representing Arizona’s District 5 in the state House of Representatives. Incumbents Regina Cobb and Paul Mosley are joined by Leo Biasiucci and Jennifer Jones-Esposito in that race.

Contested primaries take place in both major parties for the governor’s race. In the Republican primary, Doug Ducey faces Ken Bennett. On the Democratic side, Steve Farley, Kelly Fryer and David Garcia are running to make it to the November general election.

There are Republican primaries for Arizona Secretary of State, with incumbent Michele Reagan facing Steve Gaynor, and state treasurer, where Jo Ann Sabbagh and Kimberly Yee are the candidates.

There is a crowded field in the GOP state schools superintendent race with incumbent Diane Douglas facing four opponents. Kathy Hoffman and David Schapira square off in the Democratic primary.

There are five Republicans and three Democrats in the respective Arizona Corporation Commission primaries. The top two vote-getters in each primary advance to the November general election.
