The results are in and the City of Brazil will have a new mayor in November.
Brazil residents headed to the polls Tuesday for the 2011 Municipal Primary Election.
Three candidates squared off against one another on the Democratic ticket with two on the Republican ticket.
On the Democratic side, Brian Wyndham tallied 398 votes (51.82 percent), edging out incumbent Mayor Ann Bradshaw -- who had 331 votes (43.1 percent).
Beverly Chaney also finished with 39 votes (5.08 percent).
Wyndham, who ran for the position in the 2007 primary, said he had gained quite a bit of experience in the past few years.
"I have a lot of great support," he said. "That turned the tide."
Wyndham added he believed the race was going to be close, no matter what the outcome.
"Without a doubt," he said. "But I did feel confident that our team had put together a good campaign.
"I think we started out behind, then we started gaining momentum. Then we peaked at the right time. I had a lot of good help and we worked hard."
Bradshaw -- the City of Brazil's first female Mayor -- took the position on an interim basis after Thom Arthur resigned in 2007.
She was then elected to the post at the end of 2007.
She said she was proud of her campaign.
"I will say that I ran a clean campaign," she said. "I put it in God's hands."
Bradshaw told The Brazil Times she was proud of her accomplishments while in office.
"I feel like I did the best I could with what we had," she said. "I hope it continues. I hope (the new administration) sees it through."
Chaney told The Times she may run for office again in the future.
"I didn't expect a whole lot," Chaney said. "This let's people know I wanted to try to make some changes."
On the Republican ticket, TJ Sneddon won the primary with 204 votes (68 percent). John (Jack) Nelson finished with 96 votes (32 percent).
Sneddon said he was pleased with the victory.
"We felt pretty confident we'd do well today," he said. "Sixty-eight percent? I'd say that's not too bad.
"It's been a very interesting experience. I talked to a lot of people and that's important to me."
Nelson could not be reached for comment.
Both Wyndham and Sneddon said they are anticipating the fall election.
"We look forward to being on the ballot," Wyndham said.
"We're going to go out there and talk to people and get our ideas out," Sneddon added.
