John Moore is on track to be the next mayor of Williams, usurping current Mayor Ken Edes, who has held the office for eight years. Moore, a current member of the Williams City Council, raked in 51.17 percent of the unofficial votes for the March 11 election, compared to Edes' 47.94 percent. A total of 557 votes were cast in the Williams area during the election, with two voting locations offered to city residents. Write-in votes accounted for 0.90 percent. Moore obtained a total of 285 votes. Edes received 267 votes, while five votes were cast for write-in candidates, according to results from the Coconino County Elections Department.

City council candidate Frank McNelly, meanwhile, earned himself a council seat after he brought in 430 votes March 11. James Wurgler will retain his seat on the city council as well. He earned 369 votes in the primary election, according to county election results. Current Vice Mayor Bernie Hiemenz and William "Bill" Miller, meanwhile, may head to a runoff in the general election for a third council seat, though initial reports indicate that Hiemenz will retain the seat. Hiemenz earned a total of 279 votes, while Miller brought in a total of 238 votes. Candidate Walter Eastland took in the smallest number of votes behind Miller, with a total of 226 votes.

City of Williams' final results will not be completed until Friday per the timeframe allowed in Arizona statute for the processing of any provisional/conditional ballots cast at the polling places.
