Voting Starts for June 27 Rapid City Run-Off

Rapid City will resolve its last city council race on June 27. Laura Armstrong and Ron Sasso placed first and second in a three-way race for Ward 5, but neither received over 50 percent of the vote. The Rapid City Journal reports that early voting is underway at the Pennington County Administration Building. 

Mayor Steve Allender speculated to KOTA News that Rapid City could avoid the cost of run-off elections by rewriting ordinances. The candidate receiving a plurality of votes usually gained the majority in the run-off, so multi-candidate races could be decided based on votes received. 

Past election stories are found on the Black Hills Knowledge Network's online news archive.
