Updated: 9:57 p.m.
With all precincts reporting, results are in for at-large candidates and a run-off election will be held between the top candidates on Sept. 12. Early voting for the runoff election would be held Aug. 23-Sept. 5.

Take a look at the final results below:

Burkley Allen**: 8.95%
Fabian Bedne**: 7.28%
Michael Craddock: 4.7%
Matthew DelRossi: 2.36%
James Dillard: 4.10%
Reuben Dockery: 1.58%
Adam Dread: 5.74%
Steve Glover**: 6.96%
Sharon Hurt*: 9.24%
Howard Jones: 7.24%%
Gicola Lane: 5.9%
Bob Mendes*: 10.92%
Gary W. Moore: 6.07%
Zulfat Suara: 9.3%
Sheri Weiner**: 9.19%


Updated: 8:48 p.m.
With 98 of 161 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.

Posted: 7:27 p.m.
Early voting totals show Burkley Allen, Sharon W. Hurt, Bob Mendes, Zulfat Suara and Sheri Weiner have the top five highest votes so far in the Aug. 1 election.

Of the 40 Metro Nashville council seats, five at large council members are elected to serve residents countywide. Six of the 15 candidates running for the five open at large council seats are both returning at large council members and district council members, including Burkley Allen, Fabian Bedne, Steve Glover, Sharon Hurt, Bob Mendes and Sheri Weiner.

All members of Metro Nashville council, both at large and district council members, are allowed to serve two four-year terms.

Should a candidate on one or more races not receive more than 50% of the vote, a runoff election will be held between the top two candidates on Sept. 12. Early voting for the runoff election would be held Aug. 23-Sept. 5.

All results are unofficial until canvassed.
