Michael Ellis and Terry Mangram both won their races, winning by 51 and 56 votes respectively.

The runoff will take place in October.

For Blasingame, Moody and Kenneth Vines, a runoff is nothing new, as each participated in a runoff at the last election. Kenneth Vines narrowly lost to Moody in  2016. Blasingame participated in the city’s last runoff, when she won a special election in 2019.
