BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

Birmingham voters turned out to elect the next mayor, city council and school board Tuesday and FOX6 will be following these races throughout the evening.

Birmingham Mayor William Bell has earned his second full term. He earned 73 percent of the vote against four other candidates.

In the Birmingham council races, two candidates have pulled ahead as the frontrunners for council president: Marcus Lundy holds 30 percent of the vote and Leroy Bandy holds 24 percent of the vote. This triggers a runoff between the two candidates.

In Birmingham Council District 6 race, Sheila Tyson has pulled ahead with 60 percent of the vote. This is the seat that Carole Smitherman vacated earlier this year to take a judgeship.

In the Birmingham Board of Education elections, only District 3 candidate Brian Giattina is running unopposed. The other eight of nine seats are up for grabs. Incumbents in five districts are fighting to keep their seats. Currently, Virginia Volker (District 2) and Emanuel Ford (District 9) are behind in their races.

Here are the (unofficial) winners of the Birmingham elections:

Birmingham Mayor: William A. Bell, Sr., 73 percent of the vote

Birmingham Council D-1: Lashunda Scales, 64 percent of the vote

Birmingham Council D-2: Kim Rafferty, 32 percent of the vote
