voter turnout; dark red = 010%, bright red = 1020%, white = not participating

Of 466,351 registered voters, 20,202 ballots were cast, equalling a 4.33% voter turnout. All precincts are completely reported.

John Lassiter, as expected, won the primary for Republican Mayoral candidate with a 79.54% margin. Martin Davis (Dirty Book guy), however, pulled an impressive 18.97%, or in more concrete terms, 2,031 votes (out of 10,706 total). Jack Stratton received only 1.49%.

Complete mayoral and city council results can be found at the Mecklenburg County Board of Elections website.
