As usual, there are plenty of ballots left to count in Pima County (thanks to those irresponsible voters who dropped off early ballots at their polling places), so the election ain’t over yet. The unofficial word: There are 60,000 to 70,000 ballots left to sort through.

There are two remarkably close races out there:

• In Tucson’s Legislative District 10, one of the most competitive in the state, just a handful of votes separate the three candidates for two seats in the Arizona House of Representatives. Democrat and Political rookie Kirsten Engle leads the pack with 37,713 votes; Democratic incumbent Rep. Stefanie Mach is in second place with 37,290 votes; and Republican Todd Clodfelter trails her by just 36 votes at 37,254.

• In the Tucson Unified School District race for three seats, incumbent board member Mark Stegeman leads the seven-member pack with 47,480 votes. Coming in second is incumbent board member Kristel Foster, at 44,297. And in third place: Rachael Sedgwick, with 40,907 votes. But Sedgwick is ahead of three-time candidate Betts Putnam-Hildago by just 927 votes, so as the remaining ballots are counted, we could see Putnam-Hildago narrow that gap. One thing is for sure: Incumbent Cam Juarez, who has just 37,006 votes as of this morning, won’t be returning for a second term, which definitely scrambles the current balance of power on the TUSD board.
