In this case Hugh Hallman was elected mayor of Tempe with a measly 7.6 percent of the population voting for him.
In the prior example I used the entire population, which includes children, who are not allowed to vote. People often say “children are immature” and for that reason should not be allowed to vote. That may be true, but immature of not the children are forced to pay the taxes the government rulers force on them.
If you only look at the registered voters, then Hugh Hallman was elected mayor with a dismal 18.7 percent of the registered voters.
The only other person winning a spot in this election was Mark Mitchell, who won a city council seat. He did much worse then Hugh Hallman. Mark Mitchell was voted in by a dismal 5.1 percent of the total population, and 12.7 percent of all registered voters.
In this case the two people who won the election were voted in by 5.1 and 7.6 percent of the total population, and 12.7 and 18.7 percent of all registered voters.
Last I suspect that government workers, who have a financial interest in the election will often vote more often then normal citizens.
In this case if the 1700 Tempe government employees all voted they would have accounted for 11 percent of the votes in the election.
If the 792 Maricopa County government employees living in Tempe all voted they would have accounted for 5 percent of the votes in the election.
If the 2293 Arizona state employees living in Tempe all voted they would have accounted for 15 percent of the votes in the election.
If the 1280 Federal government employees living in Tempe all voted they would have accounted for 8 percent of the votes in the election.
Combined the Tempe, Maricopa County, Arizona State and Federal government workers living in Tempe if they all voted in this election they could have cast 6065 votes accounting for 39 percent of the ballot.
Last I suspect that police officers who are overpaid government parasite vote even more often the normal government workers. There always seems to be some issue on the ballot to raise police pay or hire more police officers.
There are 323 Tempe Police Officers and if they all voted in the last election they would have accounted for 2 percent of the vote.
There are 38 Maricopa County Sheriff Officers living in Tempe and if they all voted in the last election they would have accounted for 0.2 percent of the vote.
There are 36 Arizona Department of Public Safety Officers living in Tempe and if they all voted in the last election they would have accounted for 0.2 percent of the vote.
If all the city, county and state police officers living in Tempe voted they would cast 397 votes and be 2.4 percent of the vote of the last election.
