Other races in Metro Nashville for the March 3 Primary are unopposed. Incumbent Assessor of Property Vivian Wilhoite and incumbent Berry Hill City Commissioner Greg Mabey are expected to be appointed to additional terms.
Polling locations in Nashville had hours extended from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. and even 10 p.m. in some place to allow voters more time to cast ballots following yesterday morning's tornado strike in northeast Nashville. As a result, early voting totals were not released until late Tuesday night.
All results are unofficial until canvassed.
