The updated results from the Yavapai County Elections office show no runoff will take place for the three Town Council seats in Chino Valley, contrary to previous reporting, Town Clerk stated in a news release issued Wednesday.

Pat McKee received the most votes at 1,315; councilwoman Linda Hatch won re-election with 1,259 votes; and Don Wojcik won a seat with 1,210 votes. Corey Mendoza trailed with 1,146 votes.

Mayor Chris Marley ran unopposed and received 1,612 votes.

The election drew a 34.7 percent turnout, with 2,092 ballots cast of the 6,027 eligible voters, according to the elections office.

However, Lewis wrote, "While the county's listed percentages were based on total votes, the town is required to use the number of ballots received to determine the majority. Thus, a candidate would need 1,034 votes to be declared elected. Under this formula, it is possible for more candidates than there are offices to be filled to receive a majority of votes. This is what happened in Chino Valley's election."
