Alaska: North Slope Borough Mayor replacement race to close to call; possible runoff with brother-in-law of ousted mayor in second

The replacement race for North Slope Borough Mayor Charlotte Brower, who lost her seat on April 5 due to questions on her spending (notably paying for a trip to basketball camp in California for her grandkids), doesn't have a decisive victor, but Brower herself came in sixth.

The race requires the winner to get 40% of the vote. There were seven candidates and the leader has 32%, so we should have a runoff. The former borough mayor George Ahmaogak Sr. came in first. Second is Harry Brower Jr., Charlotte Brower's brother-in-law. Charlotte Brower came in sixth (she got 40 votes) and seventh was her cousin.
