Two of the nation's 100 largest cities,1 both in North Carolina, hold mayoral elections on Tuesday. These were postponed from 2021 due to delays in redistricting.
Polls close at 7:30 PM Eastern Time.
Charlotte is the 16th largest city in the United States, with a population of 880,000. The mayor is Democrat Vi Lyles, who is seeking her third term. In 2019, Lyles won reelection with 77% of the vote.
The Republican nominee is Stephanie de Sarachaga-Bilbao. The city's last Republican mayor was Pat McCrory, who served from 1995-2009.
Mayors in Charlotte normally serve two-year terms. However, this term will be shorter due to the postponement; the next election is in November, 2023.
Greensboro is the 69th largest city in the United States, with a population of 298,000. The mayor is Nancy Vaughan. She was first elected in 2013. Differing from Charlotte, mayoral elections here are nonpartisan and terms are four years.
Vaughan (45% of the vote) and Justin Outling (35%) were the top two finishers in the May primary. They advanced to Tuesday's general election.
