City of Yuma Primary Election Results August 30, 2011 - Initial Results
This information is as of 8:20 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 30. Results reflect 4 of 6 polling places and more than 5,000 early ballots
Yuma, Arizona - The City of Yuma held its primary election Tuesday, Aug. 30, where voters were to elect or narrow the field of candidates for the office of Municipal Judge and three seats on the City Council.
Polls closed at 7 p.m. The current count reflects a total of 5,417 ballots, including 5,101 early ballots and results from 4 of the 6 polling places.
|Percentage of |
|Thomas, Edward C.||2,588||47.78%|
|Percentage of |
|Umphress, Jenny Farmer||1,755||32.40%|
As they are released, election results may be viewed on the City's web site, www.YumaAz.gov/election, or on the City's Time Warner Cable channels City 73 and Ciudad 72.
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.
Should any primary election candidate accumulate votes on 50 percent plus one of the total number of ballots cast, that candidate will be elected to office and will not participate in the November general election.
The top two finishers per remaining open seat will move on to the general election on Nov. 8. That means that at least one municipal court judge candidate will be eliminated as a result of the final tally of primary election ballots.
