Roughly 774,549 Arizona voters cast ballots in the 2018 primary election today—a 21% voter turnout (based on ballots counted as of 10:30 p.m.).
Triadvocates will publish a more in-depth analysis of the primary results, our predictions for each candidate's chances in the November general election, and the expected impact of legislative races on Arizona House and Senate leadership races in a future special edition of the Navigator.
Below are a few key highlights from today’s election (results as of 10:30 p.m.).
*Winner is identified in blue.
Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey is expected to appoint a successor to U.S. Sen. John McCain by early next week. His appointee will face a special election in 2020, followed by another election in 2022 at the end of McCain's term. The winner of the general election race for U.S. Senate in November will fill the seat of Sen. Jeff Flake, who announced his retirement earlier this year.
