BE MAD ENOUGH TO VOTE! The City of Charlotte is holding elections for mayor and city council in 2017. Early voting for the September 12 primary begins TODAY!  Mayor Jennifer Roberts, who was elected mayor in November 2015, is running for re-election. Roberts will be challenged in the Democratic primary by Councilwoman Vi Lyles, State Senator Joel D McClure Ford, Constance Johnson, and Lucille Puckett. Councilman Kenny Smith, Kimberley Barnette, and Gary M. Dunn are running on the Republican side. All 11 seats on the city council—four at-large seats and seven district seats—are up for election.

If you weighed in on the city’s response to issues like the police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott and the controversy of Charlotte’s non-discrimination ordinance and House Bill 2, THIS IS THE TIME TO MAKE IT COUNT!
