At least two city council seats — as well as the mayor’s office — are up for election in municipalities across Summit County.

Tuesday’s primary election winnowed the fields to the required number of candidates for November’s general election. There can be at most twice as many candidates as open seats; for instance, only two names will appear on the ballot for any mayor’s race.

The preliminary results released shortly before 8:30 p.m. Tuesday include the mail-in ballots received as of Tuesday as well as some of the votes cast that day, according to Summit County Clerk Evelyn Furse.



The tallies may change as mail-in ballots are received throughout the week and votes that were deposited in drop boxes later on Tuesday are counted.

In Oakley, that may be particularly important. The fourth and fifth positions in the City Council race were separated by one vote in the contest for the last spot on the November ballot. In the Coalville City Council contest, the difference between advancing and not was five votes.



The counts will be finalized when cities host official canvasses Aug. 24.

Here are the preliminary East Side primary election results:

  • Lynn Wood – 147 votes, or 44.41%
