WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. — Marco McClendon has won the election for mayor of West Memphis, Arkansas.

Wayne Croom and Marco McClendon were going for the spot after all six candidates failed to secure a majority of the votes in last month’s midterm election, prompting the runoff with the top two candidates on Tuesday.

Polls opened from 7:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m.

Voters should go to their assigned polling place.

Croom and McClendon are both West Memphis City Council members. When you get down to the issues, both candidates say their priorities include public safety and economic development.

A big part of this runoff election will likely be decided by voter turnout.
