This election season operates on a non-partisan basis, where each race follows a unique pattern: the two candidates with the highest vote counts move forward to the General Election. Here are the preliminary results as of election night. Subsequent updates will be provided nightly until the final tally is complete. Individuals are granted the chance to rectify their rejected ballots until August 14th.
