What Happens in a Runoff?

If a mayoral candidate gets 40 percent of the vote or more tonight, then that person will soon get (or keep) an office in City Hall. But if none of our three major contenders (or write-ins) manage that magic number, we’ll be faced with a runoff.

City Attorney Bob White says the runoff would come on Tuesday, Nov. 24, and would be between the two candidates who garner the most votes in today’s election. In that case, the man with the most votes wins.
