ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - The race for the mayor’s seat in Anchorage is headed for a runoff election after no candidate received more than the mandatory 45 percent of the vote for an outright win.

In Tuesday’s municipal election, front-runner Ethan Berkowitz garnered nearly 37 percent of the vote, with more than 99 percent of precincts reporting by Wednesday morning.

Berkowitz appears set to face off against Amy Demboski in a runoff. Demboski collected more than 24 percent of the vote.

Former state legislator Andrew Halcro received the third largest number of votes, with nearly 22 percent.

Anchorage television station KTUU (https://is.gd/pWtprd) reports Halcro won’t challenge the results of Tuesday’s election.

Taking fourth place is former Anchorage Assembly chairman Dan Coffey, who collected more than 14 percent of the vote.
