San Antonio City Council will largely remain the same.

Nine of ten incumbents were re-elected.

The only hotly debated race was District 7. Incumbent Cris Medina will face Mari Aguirre-Rodriguez, who briefly replaced him last year while he took a leave of absence for military training, in a runoff election. That leave of absence came after the San Antonio Express-News reported Medina was under investigation by the FBI and San Antonio Police Department over allegations of public corruption.

Medina garnered 46 percent of the vote and Aguirre-Rodriguez received 28 percent. A runoff is scheduled for June 13.

Here are the rest of the unofficial results:

District 1: Robert C. Trevino won with 66 percent of the vote.

District 2: Alan E. Warrick won with 62 percent of the vote.

District 3: Rebecca Viagran won with 57 percent of the vote.

District 4: Rey Saldana won with 65 percent of the vote.

District 5: Shirley Gonzales won with 78 percent of the vote.

District 6: Ray Lopez won with 73 percent of the vote.

District 8: Ron Nirenberg won with 73 percent of the vote.

District 9: Joe Krier won with 73 percent of the vote.

District 10: Mike Gallagher won with 82 percent of the vote.
