A quick note on next week's city election: Things look good for three Democrats—Regina Romero, Shirley Scott and Paul Cunningham—who are seeking reelection against the GOP team of Bill Hunt, Margaret Burkholder and Kelly Lawton.

As of yesterday morning, more than 17,500 Democrats had turned in their ballots, compared to about 9,700 Republicans and roughly 7,900 independents. So unless there is off-the-charts crossover voting or the Republicans are capturing virtually all of the independents, it would seem that the Democrats have a solid lead at this point.

That's not to say that things couldn't shift dramatically, but at this point, the Democrats are proving more capable about locking in early votes.

Meanwhile, in the county bond election: More than 306,000 early ballots were sent out by Pima County Recorder F. Ann Rodriguez earlier this month. As of this morning, 98,605 had been returned and processed for tabulation, according to Rodriguez's office.
