Waterloo mayoral race still undecided


WATERLOO (KWWL) - Tuesday night's Waterloo mayoral runoff was more like In-Decision 2009.

It was neck and neck all night, and in the end, Buck Clark leads Steve Schmitt by 29 votes.

Tuesday, there were still 58 absentee ballots yet to be received.
If absentee votes are postmarked a day before the election or earlier, they will still be counted.

The absentee board will meet Thursday afternoon to count absentee ballots that the elections office has received.
The elections office will release the new numbers when the count is finished.

Black Hawk County Auditor Grant Veeder says an official canvass of the votes will be held next Tuesday by the Board of Supervisors.

He says if the race ends at less than 50 votes or 1 percent, the person with the fewest votes can ask for a recount. The deadline for the recount to be completed would be December 26.
