Phoenix voters will elect two City Council members on March 9.
Early voting begins soon. The city will start mailing out early ballots on Feb. 10.
People living in north-central and parts of north Phoenix will elect a council member to serve District 3, and those living in southwest Phoenix will elect a council member to serve District 7. No other districts are on the ballot in this election.

In District 3, incumbent Councilmember Debra Stark faces challenger Nicole Garcia. In District 7, Cinthia Estela and Yassamin Ansari are competing for outgoing Councilmember Michael Nowakowski’s spot. The council elections are nonpartisan.
This is a runoff election for the two spots after no candidate for either seat got more than 50% of the vote in November’s primary election.
In that election, Mayor Kate Gallego defeated two challengers to keep her seat, District 1 voters elected Ann O’Brien as a new council member to replace outgoing Councilmember Thelda Williams, and District 5 voters reelected Councilmember Betty Guardado.
Here’s more information about who is on the ballot in the upcoming election, and how, when and where to vote.
