UPDATE, 9:55 p.m.

The race for the next mayor of Sioux Falls is headed to a runoff.

No candidate received the required 50 percent of the vote to win the election outright, so the two top vote-getters, Paul TenHaken and Jolene Loetscher, will have a runoff election to decide the winner.

TenHaken finished with 34.1 percent of the vote, while Loetscher received 24.9 percent of the vote.

The two will face off in a runoff election on May 1.

Jim Entenman received 19 percent of the vote, while Greg Jamison ended up with 14.1 percent of the vote.

Kenny Anderson finished with 6.7 percent of the vote, while Mike Gunn received just over 1 percent.

Jim Entenman is currently in third with 19 percent, while Greg Jamison has 15 percent of the vote.
