New City Election Return Numbers. Plus, Your Math Challenge of the Day!

Posted By on Sat, Nov 5, 2011 at 12:26 PM

The latest number of ballot returns from the Tucson City Clerk’s office:

Democrats: 35,770
Republicans: 22,650
Libertarians: 498
Greens: 97
Independents/Etc: 17,229

That's a jump of nearly 12,000 ballots over yesterday's numbers and puts us at roughly 37 percent turnout. That number only includes the ballots whose signatures have been checked by the Pima County Recorder's Office, which means that there are a lot of ballots that have been received by the city but not processed yet. The Skinny is willing to go out on a limb and predict record turnout for a city election this year; voters have already surpassed turnout in 2009.

Your math challenge of the day: If Democratic City Councilman Paul Cunningham gets 90 percent of the Democratic vote and 5 percent of the Republican vote, while Republican Jennifer Rawson gets 95 percent of the Republican vote and 10 percent of the Democrat vote, what percentage of independent votes does Rawson need to get to win the race?

We're still looking for a winner from yesterday's math challenge.

If you haven’t yet turned in your ballot, don’t mail it; instead, turn it in at any of the polling stations that will be set up on Election Day. Here’s a full list:

• Randolph Golf Complex, 600 S. Alvernon Way.

• Quincie Douglas Branch Library, 1585 E. 36th St.

• Clements Recreation Center, 8155 E. Poinciana Drive.

• St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church, 1145 E. Fort Lowell Road.

• Udall Park Recreation Center, 7200 E. Tanque Verde Road.

• Valencia Branch Library, 202 W. Valencia Road.

• Tucson City Clerk Elections Center, 800 E. 12th St.
