Results released by the party show Caroline Mulroney finished first in voting on both the first and second ballots.
Ford and Christine Elliott were tied for second in that first ballot and while Ford was second in the next round.
Elliott, though, had over 58% of the riding's votes in the final round.
A total of 199 votes were cast in the first round, which dwindled to 180 in the third round.
