This post contains the results from all of the municipal elections we are covering tonight.
First up, we go to St. Louis where the Mayor’s office is open after Mayor Lyda Krewson decided to retire instead of running for a third term. This is the first St. Louis municipal election cycle ever where all of the races are officially nonpartisan, however both candidates in today’s race are Democrats. Polls close at 7 pm central / 8 pm eastern.
Also in St. Louis, there are thirteen city council seats up for election tonight. In twelve of them, the incumbent is running.
Down in Jackson, MS both major parties are holding primaries for Mayor today. On the Democrat side, two challengers are taking on incumbent Mayor Chokwe Lumumba, while two Republicans vie for a spot in the June 8 general election. If no Democrat reaches a 50%+1 majority, the top two finishers move on to a runoff election on April 27. Polls close at 7 pm central / 8 pm eastern
Next, out in Omaha, NE incumbent Mayor Jean Stothert, a Republican, is running for a third term in a nonpartisan primary with a field of five. The top two finishers move on to a general election on May 11. Polls close at 8 pm central / 9 pm eastern.
Also, as a little bonus, we have results for both runoff elections for the Oklahoma City city council. They are also nonpartisan races with no incumbent running.
Our last race of the night takes us all the way to Anchorage, AK where fifteen candidates, none incumbents, are running in a nonpartisan election. If no candidate reaches 45%+1 the top two finishers move on to a runoff election. Polls close at 8 pm Alaska / 12 am eastern.
