Write-in candidate Art Ferrari received 39 votes.

Winter Park voters approved Referred Measure A, which asks whether the town should continue collecting a 1 percent sales and lodging tax, first adopted in 1991, to be used for capital improvement projects. Eighty-eight voters supported the referral while 25 voters did not.
