Securing a fourth term as mayor, Democrat Vi Lyles won Tuesday’s election by a wide margin.
Lyles won with more than 73% of the vote as of about 10 p.m., according to unofficial results from the North Carolina State Board of Elections.
Republican Misun Kim had about 21% of the vote and Libertarian Rob Yates took less than 5% as of about 10 p.m.
One of the closest races of the night was in Charlotte's District 6, where incumbent Republican Tariq Bokhari leads Democrat Stephanie Hand by 352 votes after all the precincts had been counted.
Hand would have a right to a recount if the margin is less than 1%, but Bokhari is up by slightly more than 1.5%. There are likely still provisional ballots to be counted.
