Results indicate 13 votes separate Cavanaugh and Coleman
Unofficial results in one of the Pinal County races for Justice of the Peace in District 6 remains too close to call. As of August 30 at 11:00 a.m., Pinal County was reporting Doug Coleman in the lead with 2,493 votes. Kevin Cavanaugh follows with 2,480 votes, and Glenn Walp is in third place with 1,638 votes.
Pinal County Elections Director Michele Forney said that all ballots cast on Election Day were counted, except for the provisional ballots, those early ballots that arrived over the weekend and those dropped off at the polling places.
“We have approximately 1,600 provisional ballots,” Forney said. “We also had approximately 4,200 early ballots dropped off at the polls, and we have several thousand more early ballots that came between Saturday and today (August 29), that we don’t have a total for at this time.”
The District 6 Constable’s race was won by Ted Gremmel with 3,160 votes over Jack McClaren with 3,037votes.
District 6 is now the Justice Court in Apache Junction and is the result of redrawn precinct boundaries approved in July, 2017. The Apache Junction Justice Court was split from the San Tan Valley area and resulted in two fewer courts. The Justice Court realignment will be effective January 1, 2019.
*Update ; 9/4/18: Coleman has pulled ahead… by one additional vote. With a 14 vote spread, Doug Coleman now leads with 2,897 votes, to Kevin Cavanaugh’s 2,883.
