More than 4,100 voters have already cast ballots for Tuesday’s Charlotte mayoral run-off between Democrats Jennifer Roberts and Dan Clodfelter.

That includes 4,035 people who used one of six early-voting sites, which closed Saturday, according to the website of the Mecklenburg County Board of Elections. Another 79 people voted using mail-in absentee ballots.

Roberts received the most votes among Democrats in the Sept. 15 mayoral primary, but did not get enough to automatically advance to the November election. Clodfelter, who finished second in the primary and is the current mayor, called for a run-off.

Precincts will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. The run-off is open to any registered Democrat, as well as unaffiliated voters who did not cast ballots in the Republican primary last month.

Tuesday’s winner will face Republican Edwin Peacock III in November.
