District 29 Special Runoff Election Will Determine Council Representative
Jeff Roberts, 615-862-8813
Early Voting Begins February 27
Candidates Nick LaMattina and Delishia Porterfield will vie in a Special Runoff Election for District 29, following the Special Election held February 12 for the vacancy on the Metropolitan Council. Early Voting begins February 27 and Election Day will be Tuesday, March 19, 2019.
LaMattina and Porterfield – with 41 percent and 44 percent of votes cast, respectively – bested candidates Constance Smith-Burwell and Vicky Tataryn, 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 29 voters to participate and cast their ballots for the District 29 Council seat.”
Early Voting will be held at the Main Office of the Davidson County Election Commission, located at 1417 Murfreesboro Pike, beginning Wednesday, February 27 through Thursday, March 14, 2019.
