Tempe voters went to the poll on Tuesday, and the unofficial results are in.

They have returned two city councilmembers to their seats and approved three ballot measures.

Here to talk about the results from Tuesday’s city elections is Jerod MacDonald-Evoy, Tempe and Chandler community reporter for The Arizona Republic.

Tempe voters overwhelmingly approved Proposition 403, which amends the City Charter to "require the disclosure of the origins of major contributions used to influence city elections."

That goes against a bill in the state Legislature that prohibits Arizona cities and counties from looking into who’s spending what on local elections.

Tom Collins, executive director of the Arizona Clean Elections Commission, is here to talk about this.
