COLORADO SPRINGS — The Colorado Springs Mayoral Runoff Election is Tuesday between candidates Wayne Williams and Yemi Mobolade.

According to our crew at Wayne Williams' watch party, he has decided to concede the mayoral runoff election race.

Tuesday morning voter turnout was at 32 percent, ballots are due to ballot drop-off locations by 7 p.m. tonight. You can see a list of those locations here. Voter turnout has increased since Monday when it was only 28 percent.

We are now down to only two, voters in the city will be deciding on who should be the city’s next leader: Yemi Mobolade or Wayne Williams?

Here’s where the candidates stand on key issues in the city.

Both Mobolade and Williams agree on top priorities for Colorado Springs, it’s a matter of what needs to be done about those priorities where they may differ.

Mobolade points to his business experience, community service with COSILoveYou, and his time working for the city as a Small Business Development Administrator.

Williams has focused on his time in public office from his time as County Commissioner, Colorado’s Secretary of State, and most recently as a City Councilman.

The first round of ballot counts is expected at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday evening.
