Elections 2020

City primary election results will be posted to and featured on Surprise TV, the city’s cable TV channel, Tuesday evening, August 4.

The unofficial results are expected to be released by the Maricopa County Elections Department approximately after 8 p.m.

Surprise is voting on candidates for Mayor and City Council Districts 2, 3 and 4 with terms ending December 31, 2024. Voters will also choose a District 5 Councilmember for a 2-year term ending December 31, 2022. The winners will assume office the first meeting in January 2021 after receiving the official oath of office.  

Tuesday’s results are preliminary until all of the ballots dropped off at City Hall on Election Day and all Provisional Ballots are counted.  A final ballot tally is expected by August 24, if not sooner, from the Maricopa County Elections Department.

Not less than six days nor more than 20 days after a primary or general election, the governing body of the city or town will meet to canvass the votes. If the returns from any polling place are missing at the time of the meeting of the governing body, the canvass will be postponed on a day-to-day basis until all returns are received by the city or town council. Six days or six postponements is the maximum allowable under Arizona law.
