Rio Rancho city councilors voted to set April 17 as the date for runoff elections in council Districts 4 and 6. Runoff elections are necessary because no one candidate received more than 50 percent of the votes cast in the three-way District 4 race and four-way District 6 race in the municipal election held March 6.
The runoffs will be between the top two vote-getters in each of those district races.
In District 4, Mark Scott will face incumbent Steve Shaw in District 4. In District 6, incumbent Kathy Colley will run against Lonnie Clayton.
