COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)
Columbia City Clerk Sheela Amin has called for a special election to be held on August 2 to break the Ward 3 tie between Karl Skala and Roy Lovelady.
A team of bipartisan election judges certified the vote on April 11 in the Columbia City Council Third Ward race with both candidates getting 1,102 votes.
Neither candidate requested a recount of the election totals.
The candidates decided not to use a drawing to determine the winner.
Boone County Clerk Brianna Lennon says there has never been a tie in a City of Columbia election.
Skala will hold the seat till a winner is determined by the special election in August.
