After the results of Tuesday’s general election, it has been reported that Inglewood Mayor Danny Tabor and challenger James Butts will meet face-to-face in a runoff to become the city’s next mayor to serve a full four-year term.

The run-off comes because neither candidate reached the minimum number of votes–50 percent plus one vote–required for a victory.

The runoff date, which is subject to a vote of the city council, is tentatively Jan. 11, 2011.
