Unofficial final election results:

Winners in three close elections in Yavapai County learned of their new responsibilities Friday evening, as Yavapai County released unofficial final election results on its website.

John Mackin won the final seat on the Prescott Unified School District Governing Board, Bob Page retained his seat on the Central Yavapai Fire District's board, and Joe Mish remained on the Mayer Domestic Water Improvement Board, according to unofficial final results.

The large number of votes coming in after precincts had reported on General Election Day, Nov. 6, were early ballots dropped off close to election day, said Leslie Hoffman, Yavapai County Recorder. Yavapai County finished counting them Monday, and in the past few days the 4,000 provisional ballots were verified and counted, Hoffman said.

"We canvass Monday at the Board of Supervisors meeting for the county," Hoffman said.

The state canvass to certify election results is set for Dec. 3.

Voter turnout in Yavapai County was 81.57 percent, with 101,268 of 124,156 registered voters casting ballots.

This year, Yavapai county mailed out more than 80,000 early ballots, and less than 22,000 people physically went to the polls, Hoffman said.

On election night, the race for the final seat on the PUSD Governing Board between Mackin and PUSD Governing Board President Dee Navarro was too close to call, the morning after it was a tie, and numbers fluctuated until the unofficial final results were in Friday evening and Mackin won by four votes with 9,228.

In the CYFD election, it seemed Darlene Packard had moved past Bob Page on election night for the final open seat on the board, but as votes continued to be counted the next day, Page outpaced Packard. Unofficial final results Friday evening showed, Page won by 137 votes with 10,641.

Mayer Domestic Water Improvement Board Chair Joe Mish retained his seat, edging past Margie Good by seven votes with 268.
