ST. LOUIS (KMOV) -- The St. Louis City Election Board announced Thursday it will hold special municipal elections to replace Board of Aldermen President Lewis Reed on September 13 and November 8.

The vote in September will determine the two top candidates that advance to the November 8 election. Voters will be able to vote for as many candidates as they want in the initial vote in September.

Lewis Reed resigned after a federal indictment alleged he and two other aldermen, Jeffrey Boyd and John Collins-Muhammad, received substantial and numerous cash payments in exchange for political favors and land deals.
