The May 21st election is the runoff election for council districts 5 and 8. The March 12th Election was to fill a vacancy for the City of Phoenix Mayor and for Council District 5 and 8 vacancies. Council District 5 is for a term that expires on April 19, 2021 and Council District 8 is for a term that expires April 17, 2023. These races appeared on the Special Election ballot for Phoenix voters only. Because no candidate for Council Member in Districts 5 and 8 received a majority of the votes cast (50% plus one vote) at the March 12, 2019 Election, a Runoff Election will be held on May 21, 2019 between the two candidates receiving the highest number of votes in each race at the March Election.
