Wake County Election Results

Updated: Feb 5, 2020

Voters in Raleigh and Cary cast ballots in their municipal elections last month, and yesterday it was the rest of Wake County’s turn.

Since polls closed last night at 7:30 p.m., Garner, Apex and Rolesville have new mayors, and several incumbents were re-elected as mayors, to town councils and to boards of commissioners across the county.

Garner’s new mayor, Ken Marshburn, beat incumbent Ronnie Williams by 17 percentage points.

Apex’s new mayor, Jacques Gilbert, is an Apex native and former captain with the Apex Police Department. Current mayor Lance Olive was a former council member and had been mayor since 2015. He announced in August he would not seek re-election due to caring for family members.

Rolesville’s mayor pro tem, Ronnie Currin, was permanently elected to the office. Long-time mayor Frank Eagles did not seek re-election.

Last month, Raleigh voters elected Mary-Ann Baldwin mayor. Though the close election mandated a run-off election, runner-up Charles Francis announced last month he would decline a run-off and concede to Baldwin.
