Maricopa County Election Results Updated
Final election results have been posted in Maricopa County for the 2022 November General Election, with 1,562,758 ballots cast, representing 64.17 percent of voters.
Midterm turnout exceeded the historic average of 56.3 percent going back five decades, just behind the record high turnout in 2018 of 65.5 percent.
Final tallies show 84 percent of voters that participated in the November General Election cast an early ballot, while 16 percent voted in person on Election Day.
“I want to say thank you to our election heroes who have worked countless hours to verify and tally more than 1.56 million ballots — including a 70 percent increase in early ballots dropped off on Election Day,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Bill Gates, District 3. “The tireless effort of our poll workers, election staff and political observers ensure that the collective voice of our voters is heard.”
The Board of Supervisors will canvass the November General Election on Monday, November 28. The canvass represents the full accounting of the vote, including counted and rejected ballots.
“Another remarkable milestone to add to the books,” Recorder Stephen Richer said. “I am incredibly proud of our staff, the 3,000 temporary workers, and the more than 1.5 million Maricopa County voters who helped make this all possible. From our warehouse crew to our truck drivers to our signature verifiers, these dedicated team members have spent countless hours and sacrificed precious time away from family and friends to ensure every legal vote was counted. We will continue to serve Maricopa County voters in the days and weeks to come as we prepare for the upcoming canvass.”
The post-election Logic and Accuracy test is scheduled for Tuesday, November 22. The Board of Supervisors is scheduled to canvass the election on November 28.
Automatic recounts for races within the .5% statutory threshold would begin after the state certifies the election on December 5.
Maricopa County expanded voting access for the 2022 General Election and continued to focus on security and transparency. Voters had 28-days of in-person voting, including 223 Vote Center locations on Election Day.
