ELDON — Pearlicia Cloke made the ballot for Eldon’s city council elections after her name was drawn in a tiebreaker.
Cloke tied with George Loerzel III in Tuesday’s primary election. There are three seats up for election, which allows six candidates on the general election ballot. The tie would not have mattered, except for the fact Cloke and Loerzel tied for the sixth and final spot.
Iowa law settles tie votes with a drawing. Supervisor Wayne Huit was chosen to make the draw, and he pulled Cloke’s name.
The other candidates on Eldon’s general election ballot include Stacy Creme Doree, David Showman, Patti Durflinger, Sean Coulter and Tom Bedford.
