Political consultant Zina Pierre appears to have won Tuesday's Democratic primary in the race for Annapolis mayor. With all the precincts reporting, Pierre held a 115-vote lead over the nearest challenger, Anne Arundel County Councilman Joshua J. Cohen, in the six-person race.

Cohen all but conceded the election last night. The results are not official and do not include absentee ballots. The winner faces Republican Alderman David Cordle and independent Chris Fox.

Incumbent Mayor Ellen Moyer cannot run again because of term limits. About 12 percent of the city's approximately 23,000 registered voters headed to the polls, according to election officials.
