Update 11:15 p.m.
After all precincts reported and a total of 2,468 votes were counted, the race for Grapevine City Council Place 6 is forced to a runoff between the two frontrunners, Duff O'Dell and LuAnn Chapman Gatts, according to unofficial results.
O'Dell led the race throughout the night and ended with a total of 1,025 votes. Gatts finished with 645 total votes. Since O'Dell had 41.53 percent of the vote, and Gatts with 26.13 percent, neither candidate received more than 50 percent, which spurred the need for a runoff.
While Gatts said the runoff was not hoped for, she said it was expected considering the race included so many contenders. Gatts said that in the meantime before the runoff, she will keep up with her campaign like before and help the public understand that she will represent them in the best way.
One of the things Gatts said she will focus on is improving communication and meeting as many voters as possible to learn what is important to them.
O'Dell said for the CI election issue in the April that she supports the city's fiscal responsibility and wants to be a part of the city's discussion regarding its undeveloped land and transportation issues.
Early voting for the runoff begins June 9 and the election will be on June 21.
Results are unofficial until canvassed.
Posted 8:02 p.m.
In the race for the Grapevine City Council Place 6 seat, unofficial early results show Duff O'Dell leading with a margin in the four-candidate race, followed by LuAnn Chapman Gatts, Deverick P. Jordan and Marc Blum.
