On Monday, Pima County announced they have finished counting the provisional and early ballots from the Nov. 6 election. The Pima County Board of Supervisors has scheduled a special meeting Nov. 26 at 9 a.m. to certify the election results.

While county election officials finished counting the remaining 566 ballots on Monday, most of the close races were called over the weekend.

The most watched race was in Congressional District 2, where Rep. Ron Barber narrowly beat Republican Martha McSally by about 1,400 votes.

Barber said, “ I am deeply grateful to everyone who supported me in this campaign. Thank you to those who voted for me, knocked on doors, made phone calls, or contributed to this campaign in so many ways. Our charge is clear: to stand up for middle class families and look out for Southern Arizona’s future.”

While Pima County has finished counting ballots, counting continues in other counties. As of Tuesday morning, 13 of the state’s 15 counties have finished. Maricopa still had more than 30,000 provisional ballots to count by Tuesday morning.

The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
