LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - The Little Rock mayoral race has been a heated, close race that we've been following for months. On Election Day, Nov. 6, a runoff between candidates Baker Kurrus and Frank Scott Jr. was announced.

Kurrus ended the day with 29 percent of the votes, Scott with 37 percent and Warwick Sabin with 28 percent. Sabin conceded that night, leaving Kurrus and Scott with the runoff.

Since then, the two have been heavily campaigning. Now, it's runoff Election Day and we're live blogging with the latest.

For either to win, they have to have at least 40 percent of the votes.

Both candidates participated in our Little Rock, Big Choice Mayoral Forum in September. To watch, click here, to read notable moments, click here.
