Latest City Election Numbers, Plus Your Math Challenge of the Day!

Posted By on Fri, Nov 4, 2011 at 12:45 PM

The latest number of ballot returns from the Tucson City Clerk’s office, as of this morning:

Democrats: 30,867
Republicans: 19,903
Libertarians: 358
Greens: 215
Independents/Etc: 13,139

For those who are wondering: That’s roughly 35 percent turnout. And, on sheer numbers, we've got 64,482 ballots turned back in, which is closing in on the 74,168 ballots that were cast in the ’09 city election. The Range would not be surprised to see record-breaking turnout in this city election.

Your math challenge of the day: If Democratic City Councilwoman Shirley Scott gets 85 percent of the Democratic vote and 5 percent of the Republican vote, while Republican Tyler Vogt gets 95 percent of the Republican vote and 15 percent of the Democrat vote, what percentage of independent votes does Vogt need to get to win the race?

Congrats to Austin Counts for nailing yesterday's math challenge.
