The campaign isn't over for Chattanooga City Council District 4 incumbent Jack Benson and candidate Larry Grohn.
Both Grohn and Benson will be on the ballot for a runoff election scheduled for April 9. In the March 5 election they edged out Ryan King, Scott McColpin and Tom Tomisek.
“There were so many candidates on the ballot for District 4 that nobody came out with the majority of votes which is 50 percent plus one,” said Hamilton County Administrator of Elections Charlotte Mullis-Morgan.
She said all polling places in District 4 will be open for the runoff election April 9 from 8 a.m. until 7 p.m. In the event that the city of Chattanooga decides to have early voting for the runoff election, Mullis-Morgan said all early voting will take place at the Hamilton County Election Commission, located at 700 River Terminal Road.
The administrator noted that anyone voting in the District 4 runoff election is required to have a state or government issued photo ID to vote.
Voter registration cards are not necessary but provide helpful information about which precinct voters need to vote at, she said.
