All tallies are unofficial. The following vote is from all 102 precincts in the county reporting, with a total of 59,943 votes counted so far. Turnout in Pinal County appeared to be about 26 percent.

Pinal County issued the latest numbers about 12:30 p.m. Thursday and said it still has about 7,000 early ballots and 182 provisional ballots left to process. Another update is expected Friday, according to the elections office.

Six candidates are vying for three seats on Maricopa City Council.
