Democrat Vi Lyles won the race to be Charlotte’s next mayor by capturing 59 percent of the vote and a large swath of the city’s precincts.
But the precincts won by Republican Kenny Smith saw some of the highest voter turnout, election data show.
Thirty percent of voters turned out in the precincts Smith captured. These precincts were largely relegated to south Charlotte.
About 17 percent of voters turned out in the precincts Lyles won.
Never miss a local story.
Turnout ranged from from less than 1 percent near Huntersville to 50 percent near Eastover.
