There were 4 write-in votes in Coconino County and 6 in Yavapai County.

In the Sedona City Council election:

  • Angela LeFevre garnered 505 votes in Coconino County and 1,034 in Yavapai County, for 1,539 total.
  • Jon "J.T." Thompson garnered earned 381 votes in Coconino County and 899 in Yavapai County, for 1,280 total.
  • Scott Jablow won 338 votes in Coconino County and 673 in Yavapai County, for 1,011 total.

  • There were 5 write-in votes in Coconino County and 10 in Yavapai County.

In order to avoid a runoff, candidates needed to reach a particular threshold of Total Votes (4,402+2,036) divided by Number of Seats (3) divided by 2, rounded up to the nearest whole number, for a total of 1,073 in this preliminary, unofficial count. Thompson and LeFevre appear to have reached that threshold. The next two highest vote-getters, Jablow and Robson, will face off in a runoff for the last seat unless late, provisional and absentee ballots push Jablow over the threshhold.

Proposition 429, the Alternative Expenditure Limitation, also known as Home Rule, passed 1,544 to 774 (499 to 237 in Coconino County and 1,121 to 537 in Yavapai County), or 66.01 percent to 33.39 percent.

Results will change as late, provisional and absentee ballots are counted.
