MACON, Ga. (AP) — Macon Mayor Robert Reichert and challenger C. Jack Ellis were the top vote-getters in a Tuesday night election and will face each other in a runoff. With all 40 precincts and absentee ballots counted, Reichert led the field of seven candidates with 17,810 votes, giving him 49 percent of the ballots. A candidate must receive 50 percent plus one vote to avoid a runoff. WMAZ-TV reports (http://on.wmaz.com/152jWrN) that Reichert was 151 votes short of avoiding a runoff. Ellis, with 30 percent of the vote, got 10,838 votes. ___ Information from: WMAZ-TV, http://www.wmaz.com/
