KIMBERLING CITY, Mo. – Voters in Kimberling City will decide a tied race for Ward Two Alderman in a special election today.

Incumbent Michele Stump and challenger Robert Marlette each received 76 votes in the April 5th municipal election, leading the city to call for a runoff.

According to City Clerk Barbara Hubbard, Stump and Marlette were given other options, including a coin toss, high card draw or picking straws to break the tie. Since the candidates could not agree on a particular method, the city had to schedule a special election, costing between a thousand and 15-hundred dollars.

Voters can cast their ballots today between the hours of 6 a.m. and 7 p.m. at the Kimberling City Community Center.

We’ll have the election results on-air and online this evening at HometownDailyNews.com.
