In the City of Henderson Non-Partisan Runoff Election of Tuesday, November 3, 2015, incumbent City Councilwoman Brenda Peace was defeated by challenger Melissa Elliott for the 3rd Ward At Large Seat, and Marion Brodie Williams defeated Clarence J. Dale for the 1st Ward Ward Seat.
Elliott received 554 total votes to Peace’s 439. That’s 55.79 percent of the votes to Elliott and 44.21 percent to Peace. In the earlier election in October, Elliott received just nine more votes than Peace, and since Elliott did not earn 50 percent of the votes plus one more vote that allowed Peace to call for a runoff.
Williams received 158 votes to Dale’s 125. That’s 55.83 percent of the votes to Williams and 44.17 percent to Dale. In the October election, the two candidates tied with 234 votes.
