Election results by district 

Voter turnout was very low—under 30% in some districts.

The elections office hasn't released official voting turnouts yet, but I was able to cobble together district-by-district turnouts using previously released numbers of eligible voters per district, and matching that with numbers of votes per candidate as released on the city's web site. The percentages below won't be exact, because they don't include spoiled ballots, but otherwise they should be fairly reliable:
