Voters across Dallas County went to the polls Saturday to select city and school board officials and decide on property tax-backed debt propositions.

The highest-profile local election, for Dallas mayor, resulted in a runoff between five-term Democrat State Rep. Eric Johnson and term-limited liberal-progressive Dallas City Council member Scott Griggs. City council races in Districts 4, 7, 9, and 14 are also headed to runoffs; District 7 incumbent Kevin Felder was not one of the top two finishers. Runoff elections will be held on June 8.

Dallas County Community College District’s $1.1 billion debt proposition passed by a 71 to 29 percent margin. Garland voters approved all eight of the city’s proposed $423 million in debt propositions, while Farmers Branch voters defeated a $24 million library bond 67 to 33 percent.
