Tie Vote in February 27 Green Party Special 8th Congressional District Primary Results Means No Green Party Candidate to Be on April 24 Special Election Ballot
The Maricopa County write-in canvass from the February 27 special primary in Arizona's Eighth Congressional District has been tallied, and two Green Party candidates tied with 13 votes.
Under Arizona law, a candidate from a party like the Arizona Green Party, which does not qualify for continued representation on the ballot, needs to get "a plurality" of the vote to win a primary and proceed to the general election ballot. (Arizona Revised Statutes 16-645(D))
Richard Grayson and Gary Swing each got 13 votes and 50% of the vote. Thus, neither candidate won a plurality, and the Arizona Secretary of State would not certify a Green Party nominee for the April 24 special general election ballot. The candidates will be Democrat Hiral Tiperneni and Republican Debbie Lesko.
