The Yuma City Council on Wednesday canvassed the City’s results of the Aug. 2 primary election, making the results both final and official.
Voters had their first opportunity of this cycle to elect or nominate candidates for the offices of Mayor, three at-large seats on the City Council, and Presiding Municipal Court Judge.
Per Yuma City Charter, Article IV, Section 5, any candidate receiving votes constituting a majority of all ballots cast in the primary is elected to office. Mayor Douglas Nicholls and Presiding Judge James Coil are re-elected to four-year terms starting January 2023.
Candidates for City Council will move to the general election in November at a rate of two candidates per seat. Six candidates with the most votes received will move forward in the general election.
Following are final, official results, reflecting 11,580 ballots cast.
|mayor||votes cast||Percentage of Ballot’s Cast|
|City Council||votes cast||Percentage of Ballot’s Cast|
Presiding Municipal Court Judge: Coil, James
Votes Cast: 9,413
Percentage of Ballot’s Cast: 82%
Percentages reflect a percentage of the total number of ballots cast, rather than a percentage of the total number of votes cast, because Yuma City Council seats are considered at-large, and each ballot may contain up to three votes for members of the City Council .
