In order for a candidate to be elected at the August Primary, he or she must receive a majority of the total votes cast.   Pursuant to Arizona Law (A.R.S. §9-821.01), the total number of votes cast is calculated by adding the total number of votes cast for all candidates for an office; dividing that sum by the number of seats to be filled at the election and then dividing the result of that calculation by two and rounding the number to the highest whole number. If more candidates receive a majority than there are offices to be filled, the candidates receiving the highest number of votes equal to the number of seats to be filled shall be declared elected.


Elections in Paradise Valley are held in the fall of even numbered years.  Every election cycle the mayor's seat and three council seats are on the ballot.  To be eligible to run for office candidates must meet the following qualifications:
