Albuquerque's District 7 city council race isn't settled yet.
With 50 of 50 vote centers reporting, Janice Arnold-Jones holds a lead over Diane Gibson by a margin of 49.26% to 39.48%.
City rules state that if no candidate has over 50 percent of the vote, a runoff election must take place.
The impending runoff election may also mean that voters will be able to decide on a controversial late-term abortion ban at the polls rather than by mail-in vote.
City Council approved the special election back in September.
The special election is scheduled to take place on November 19.
