Fayetteville voters to choose mayor, 9 City Council members on Tuesday

Ballots may be cast at polling precincts across city


Tuesday is Election Day for Fayetteville voters, who will cast ballots for mayor and nine members of the City Council.

Polls will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.

A photo ID is not required to vote.

Voters who have moved since they last cast ballots and did not change their registration address can go to their previous precinct and fill out a voter transfer form. They can then take that form to their new precinct and will be allowed to vote, according to the Cumberland County Board of Elections web page.

The deadline to change registration is 25 days before an election.

If precinct officials are unable to locate a voter’s registration record, the voter may be asked to cast a provisional ballot.

Voters may check their registration and see a sample ballot online at voter search.

Curbside voting is offered for those who are disabled or otherwise qualify for assistance.

Fayetteville voters will choose between these candidates in 10 contests:

  • Mayor: Mitch Colvin, Freddie De la Cruz.
  • City Council District 1: Kathy Keefe Jensen, Alex Rodriguez.
  • City Council District 2: Shakeyla Ingram, Tyrone A. Williams.
  • City Council District 3: Mario Benavente, Antonio Jones.
  • City Council District 4: Thomas Greene, D.J. Haire.
