Presiding Municipal Judge /Votes Cast / Percentage of Ballots Cast

Coil, James 5,029  84%

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.

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 Nicholls and Presiding Judge Coil are re-elected to their seats.

Candidates for City Council will move to the general election in November at a rate of two candidates per seat; thus two will be eliminated when the final tally comes in.

Votes will become final and official once canvassed by the Yuma City Council.
