Mecklenburg County residents will have the opportunity to cast their ballots Tuesday, July 17, as several key races face a run-off election.
Early voting continues through Saturday, July 14, and the polls are open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. July 17.
U.S. House District 9 Republicans
Voters are going to get another shot at picking a Republican to face Democrat Jennifer Roberts and Libertarian Curtis Campbell in November.
Neither Jim Pendergraph nor Robert Pittenger could separate themselves from the crowded field well enough in May’s primary to outright take the Republican spot on the November ballot. Ten candidates on the Republican side were running for Rep. Sue Myrick’s seat in Congress, with Pittenger getting 28.14 percent of the vote and Pendergraph 26.86.
N.C. Senate 41 Republicans
Jeff Tarte and John Aneralla will face off for the N.C. Senate 41 race. In May, Tarte received 37.64 percent and Aneralla got 36.25 percent of the vote. The new district covers north Mecklenburg, then runs down the eastern edge of the county to include the Matthews and Mint Hill area and one or two south Charlotte neighborhoods.
