In Districts 3 and 7 there are runoffs, and today the Phoenix City Clerk is mailing out early ballots to voters in those two Districts. The official Election Day is March 9. Please remember that Phoenix City Council races are non-partisan, just like our law firm. The outcome of these two races will heavily influence the dynamics of the Phoenix City Council going forward.
