District 33 special election set for Tuesday

Candidates Antoinette Lee and Tim Herndon will vie in a Special Runoff Election for District 33, following the Special Election in August for the vacancy on the Metropolitan Council. Election Day is Tuesday, Sept. 19, 2017.

 A Special Election was held for District 33 after former council member Sam Coleman was selected by his colleagues to fill the General Sessions judge position, previously held by Casey Moreland. Special Election candidates included Jack Byrd III, Martez Coleman, Tim Herndon, Antoinette Lee and Michael E. Mayhew.

 Lee and Herndon – with 39 percent and 38 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 right and power residents have in helping shape their communities,” said Jeff Roberts, Davidson County administrator of elections. “We encourage all registered District 33 voters to participate and cast their ballots for theDistrict 33 council seat.”

 On Election Day, Sept. 19, residents must vote at their assigned polling location, printed on their voter registration card or found on the Polling Place Finder at www.nashville.gov/vote Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
