Election Results

The next mayor of Apache Junction will be decided in November. Also, unofficial returns of last Tuesday’s election indicate three new councilmembers will be seated in 2021.

All election returns are unofficial until the official canvass of ballots by Pinal and Maricopa counties later this month.

Vice Mayor Chip Wilson and Councilmember Robin Barker received more votes for mayor out of the five candidates on the ballot on Tuesday. However, since none of the candidates received the required number of votes as determined by state law, the top two candidates advance to a November run-off election.

For council, Tess Nesser, Kelly Gremmel and Braden Biggs outpolled the field of five and each received enough votes over the threshold to be elected outright once the balloting is confirmed.

Also, Proposition 442, the city’s General Plan, was approved on Tuesday, by a margin of nearly 3-to-1, according to the initial returns.

The latest returns from Pinal and Maricopa counties as of early Monday, Aug. 10:


Chip Wilson     2,517
Robin Barker   2,026
John Insalaco  1,200
Chas Austin        611
Write-in                43


Tess Nesser     3,290
Braden Biggs   3,191
Kelly Gremmel 3,095
Darryl Cross     2,873
Jeff Struble       2,580
Write-in                 26

Proposition 442 - General Plan

Yes – 4,766 – 74.7%
No  – 1,611 – 25.3%
