Field set for 2023 City Council elections

With four candidates filing for the Mayor seat on Edmond City Council, a Feb. 14 primary vote will determine the final two candidates for the April 4 general election. Because there are two candidates in each race for the seats open in Ward 1 and Ward 2, no primary vote is necessary and the winner in each Ward will be decided in the April 4 general election.

Four individuals filed for the Mayor seat on City Council. Those four candidates are:

  • Darrell A. Davis, the current Edmond Mayor
  • Ed Moore
  • Rich Hess
  • Brian Shellem

Candidates in Ward 1 are:

  • Tom Robins
  • Ashley N. Bradley

Candidates in Ward 2 are:

  • Barry K. Moore
  • Judy Rau

Elections for Edmond City Council are non-partisan. Under Edmond’s electoral rules, in the Feb. 14 primary election, the two Mayor candidates receiving the most votes will be on the ballot for the April 4 general election. Edmond residents from all Wards are eligible to vote in the municipality’s general elections.

City Council is a five-member body, including the Mayor, representing the four Wards that make up the City of Edmond. Ward representative council terms are four years and the mayor serves a two-year term.

Because there are now only two candidates for the Mayor's seat, there is no need for a February primary vote. The  final two candidates, current Edmond mayor Darrell A. Davis and Brian Shellem will be on the ballot for the Mayor seat in the April 4 general election.
