In our election night coverage, the Polk County Enterprise incorrectly reported that Shelly Bush Sitton and Tommy Coleman will face off in the May 24 runoff election in the race for criminal district attorney. This is incorrect.

To win outright, a candidate must have 50% plus one vote, not 51% as reported. Sitton received 3,305 votes which was 50.86% of the votes cast in this race.

Coleman received 2,099 votes, or 32.30%, and a third candidate, Julie Mayes Hamrick, received 1,094 votes, or 16.84%.

The Enterprise regrets the error and apologizes for any confusion this may have caused.
