There will be a runoff election for the City of Huntsville's District 5 council seat.
The incumbent, Will Culver, did not accumulate enough votes to avoid the runoff. He needed 50% of the vote plus one.
The runoff will be between Culver and John Meredith.
“Culver, the incumbent, received 2,470 votes (49.65%), Meredith 1,887 votes (37.93%) and Tom Hopf 618 votes (12.42%)," the city said in a statement last Wednesday.
The provisional ballots were counted Monday morning and determined the need for the runoff.
