CLINTON, LA (WAFB) -
In Clinton, the race is on with all eyes on Town Hall. The
voters spoke loud and clear Tuesday night with just one vote keeping the
Clinton mayor's race from being a tie so now, it's a runoff.
smaller, rural areas, you may not have a whole lot of voters out there
so every vote counts," said East Feliciana Clerk of Court David Dart.
Initially, three candidates were up for the position: Incumbent Don Reason, Lori Ann Bell and Robert Flowers.
Flowers took away 170 votes, Bell had 404 and Reason had just one more than Bell, 405.

the more than 1,300 voters in Clinton, nearly 75% voted. For a
candidate to win out right, they have to have at least 50% of the votes.
In this case, both had 41%.
Dart said the voter turnout this

candidates just over four weeks to try to win over as many voters as
they can and both are asking voters to fulfill their duty and right. As
for that phrase "every vote counts," they can't say it enough in
"It's very important. Voter turnout, that's what's going to determine this race, the turnout," said Bell.
"Just get out and vote. Who you vote for is your preference, but just get out and vote," said Reason.
"Especially in these type of elections, municipal elections, every vote counts so get out and vote," said Dart.
