The Special Ward 6 City Council race will use Ranked Choice Voting and appear on the back of the State Primary ballot for voters in Ward 6. No other races on the State Primary ballot will be conducted using Ranked Choice Voting.
Candidate totals for each of the three rankings in the Special Election will be available on the Secretary of State’s website after Election Day. If a candidate receives enough first-choice rankings, they will be declared the unofficial winner t. If no one receives enough first-choice rankings to win, Ranked Choice Voting tabulation will begin on Friday, August 14. In either scenario, the first-choice rankings will be shared on our website to show why further tabulation is or is not necessary.
If necessary, Ranked Choice Voting tabulation will begin on Friday, August 14 and is expected to be completed the same day. After tabulation is completed, we will post a notice on our social media accounts (Twitter, Facebook) to indicate that the final tabulation results will be posted to the our website.
