A special run-off election is taking place today in Lewiston for residents to choose a new mayor.
The candidates are Robert MacDonald and Mark Paradis. As Paradis passed away last Friday, if he is chosen by popular vote in today's run-off election, the office of mayor will be vacant and a new election cycle for Lewiston mayor will begin.
