The runoff election for the City Council’s District 6 seat will be July 8th. Federal regulations and state law require 45 days between canvassing votes and a runoff to allow ballots to be mailed to registered voters outside the United States. The regulation mostly impacts voters serving in the military. The City Council today (yesterday) canvassed the votes from the May 6th election and called for the runoff election. No candidate won 50 percent plus one vote in the District 6 race in the May 6th city election. Steve Hampton and Billie DeWitt will vie for the post in the runoff. The winner will serve a four-year term.
