Runoff in Cary Council District D to take place November 7; Early Voting starts THIS Thursday for all November elections
The Wake County Board of Elections held their official Canvass today with the five-member board certifying the results of the Town of Cary Municipal Election. Mayor Harold Weinbrecht, Jr., who ran unopposed was reelected, along with incumbent At-Large Council member Lori Bush. District B candidate Michelle Craig was elected. In District D, however, the Council member contest will be decided next month in a Runoff Election between candidates Sarika Bansal and Rachel Jordan. Full details on each contest and the results can be found on the Wake County Board of Elections website.
“With the October election behind us, our staff is jumping straight into the November elections” said Wake County Elections Director Olivia McCall. “It’s a quick turnaround for our team to prepare for the 13 municipalities scheduled for November 7, but our goal is to make all of them run just as smoothly and efficiently as this one.”
Municipal elections for November include Angier, Apex, Durham, Fuquay-Varina, Garner, Holly Springs, Knightdale, Morrisville, Rolesville, Wake Forest, Wendell and Zebulon in Wake County, in addition to the Runoff in Cary District D.
