Election season is underway and next week Charlotte voters will head to the polls in the first round of voting for mayor. In the primary, Republican voters will chose between two candidates. Democrats will have a wider field from which to choose including an incumbent.  Whoever wins in November, will be the city’s fifth mayor in five years and issues include a $20 million budget deficit. We take a closer look at the candidates and the issues.
