Because no candidate received more than 50 percent of the total votes cast in the regular municipal election for the offices of Mayor and District 5 City Councilor, a runoff election is necessary per City Code.
In the runoff election, the candidates will be:
Mayor (four-year term, at-large)
District 5 City Councilor (four-year term)
Thomas R. Buckner
The runoff election will be held between 35 days to 45 days after the canvass (scheduled for March 7, 2014) of the regular election is completed. The runoff election date will be set by vote of the Rio Rancho Governing Body at their March 12, 2014, regular meeting at 6:30 p.m. at Rio Rancho City Hall, 3200 Civic Center Circle.
Out of 57,601 registered voters, 6,960 or 12.08 percent voted in the March 4, 2014, regular municipal election.
