Carter served the 27th ward for 19 years.</p><p>The election to find an alderman will take place Oct. 16. Officials couldn’t wait until the Nov. 6 general election because of a rule in the city charter that requires a vote be taken if a seat is vacated over 180 days before the next election.</p> Mon, 08 Oct 2012 20:10:11 +0000 Tina Eaton 5156 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org Voting Officials Highlight Key Dates For Election Season
