TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

An underwhelming turnout to Tuesday's Democratic Primary Election secured spots on the ballot for three Tucson City Council members in the November general election.

They were all contested races in the three wards on the mail-in ballot, but state law requires a primary.

In Ward 3, incumbent Democrat Karin Uhlich will meet Republican challenger Ben Beuhler Garcia in November, while Ward 5 incumbent Democrat Richard Fimbres will face Republican Michael Polak.

Ward 6 democratic incumbent Steve Kozachik has no opposition in the primary or the general election.

Uhlich received 3,448 votes, Fimbres secured 2,542 votes and Kozachik earned 4,830 votes.
