Herrin's Mayoral Election didn't provide a clear-cut winner between incumbent Vic Ritter and Steve Frattini. Joe Ragusa has more.
UPDATE 12:17 p.m. 27 Absentee Ballots in Williamson County have not been received yet, according to Williamson County Clerk Amanda Barnes. 3 of those could effect the Herrin Mayoral race, the exact margin of victory for Vic Ritter. Those ballots need to be received by April 23rd and need to be postmarked on or before April 8th in order to count.
There was also 4 ballots that were thrown out due to non-matching signatures, but Barnes says she does not know if any of those were from Herrin. Candidates have five days after the official vote has been announced to request a recount.
