ST. LOUIS (KMOX) –  Today’s the special election in the 27th Ward to fill the seat left vacant by the untimely death of Alderman Greg Carter.

He was killed in a traffic crash in early August at the age of 54.

Carter’s nephew, Democrat Chris Carter, is running for the post against former city alderman Jimmie Matthews, who’s listed as an independent.

The winner will be sworn in this Friday and will serve until the regularly scheduled election next March.
