Unofficial results: Moravia Council At-Large

A two-way tie exists for one of the two at-large council seats open in Moravia.

Unofficial results show a two-way tie between candidates for one of the open Moravia Council seats that was hotly contested Tuesday.

Sheila Kirby pulled away from the pack with 127 votes to win one of the seats.

The second seat remains in question after the unofficial results show a two-way tie. Donald Havard (incumbent) and Ronald Deal each ended the night with 64 votes.

The winner will be chosen by a lot draw during the canvassing of results on Nov. 13. A lot draw means the election will be decided, essentially, by a name being selected from a hat.

Appanoose County Auditor Kelly Howard said none of the outstanding absentee ballots that weren’t returned by election day came from Moravia.

The ballot for two Moravia City Council At-Large terms was crowded with eight names running for the spot.

In a contested Moravia mayor race, Roy Miller defeated William Lewis 112 votes to 64 votes. Incumbent mayor Irene Brooks did not seek re-election for the seat.

Another council seat that's a two-year term to fill a vacancy was unopposed. George Bob Robinson collected 113 votes to win the seat. There were 65 write-in votes cast.

James Hanes, Jerry Robison and John Baty won the Moravia School Board seats.
