At-large council members

With all precincts reporting, candidates Burkley Allen, Sharon W. Hurt, Bob Mendes, Zulfat Suara and Sheri Weiner are still the top five candidates in the race for at-large seats. However, with nearly more than half of precincts counted, numbers remain largely unchanged from early voting totals, and a runoff seems likely.

According to the Metro Nashville charter, should an at-large candidate not receive a large enough percentage of the vote, a runoff election will be held between the top candidates on Sept. 12. Early voting for the runoff election would be held Aug. 23-Sept. 5.
