Elections for the mayor and city council of Mesa, Arizona were scheduled to take place on November 4, 2014. A primary election took place on August 26, 2014.The deadline for candidates wishing to run in this election was May 28, 2014.[1] In addition to the office of the mayor, three council seats were up for election.

The office of the mayor and District 6 were open seats. In districts 4 and 5, incumbents Chris Glover and David Luna ran for re-election. Glover ran unopposed.

In the primary election for mayor, John Giles defeated Danny Ray. In the District 5 primary, David Luna defeated Robert Cluff. In the District 6 primary, Kevin Thompson defeated Trevor Hansen. Because each of these primary winners won a majority of the vote, the general election for mayor and city council scheduled for November 4, 2014, was called off.[2]

Mayor

Although this position was previously up for election in 2012, it is up again in 2014 to fill an unfinished term. Scott Smith resigned to run for Governor of Arizona on January 9, 2014.[3]

Candidates

Note: The office of the mayor is currently held by Alex Finter. Following this election, Finter will return to his position on the city council representing District 2.
