District 1 Special Runoff Election Will Determine Council Representative
Election Day is June 28
Contact: Jeff Roberts
Candidates Judy Cummings and Jonathan Hall will vie in a Special Runoff Election for District 1, following the Special Election in May for the vacancy on the Metropolitan Council. Election Day is Thursday, June 28, 2018.
A Special Election was held for District 1 after former Council member Nick Leonardo was selected by his colleagues to fill the General Sessions judge position, previously held by Angie Blackshear Dalton. Special Election candidates included Sylvester Armor, Ruby Baker, Gwen Brown-Felder, Judy Cummings and Jonathan Hall.
Cummings and Hall – with 27 percent and 34 percent of votes cast, respectively – bested other candidates in the Special Election, but neither received a majority of the votes cast. As a result, the Metropolitan Charter calls for a Runoff Election.
“Voting is an important means for residents to shape their communities,” said Jeff Roberts, Davidson County administrator of elections. “We encourage all registered District 1 voters to participate and cast their ballots for the District 1 Council seat.”
On Election Day, June 28, residents must vote at their assigned polling location, printed on their voter registration card or found via the Polling Place Finder at www.nashville.gov/vote. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
