Note that these results do not reflect processing of all ballots. "No determination of election will be made until all ballots are processed and we receive the unofficial final results from Coconino and Yavapai counties," Sedona City Clerk Susan Irvine said.

The margin, aka "magic number" threshold at this point is 758.333, rounded up to 759. As all four candidates reached this threshold, total number of votes determine the winners, thus, Joe Vernier, John Currivan and incumbent Vice Mayor John Martinez have been unofficially elected. Incumbent Jessica Williamson was not elected.
