Unofficial results of the May 5 primary election show Patrick J. Closser winning the Republican nomination for mayor of London. He received 552 votes to Henry Comer’s 266 votes.

In the only other contested race in the primary election, Megan M. Douglas, Roger T. Morris, and Joshua E. Peters won the Republican nominations for the three at-large seats up for election on London city council.

Douglas, Morris and Peters could face opposition in the November election. Three individuals have filed petitions to run in the November election as independent candidates for the at-large council seats. They are William E. Birmele, Michael Christopher Cox and Brenda S. Russell.

The deadline to file as an independent for the fall ballot was May 4. The Madison County Board of Elections will certify the candidate petitions on July 15. The only other person to file as an independent for the fall ballot is Jennifer J. Hitt for president of London city council.

The deadline for write-in candidates to file to run for any seat in the November election is 4 p.m. Aug. 24.

A total of 826 of London’s 5,807 registered voters (14.22 percent) cast ballots in the May 5 election. The Board of Elections will certify the official results on May 26.
