2021 Municipal Elections - Wilmington, Leland, Carolina Beach, and Wrightsville Beach
Coverage of council and mayoral elections from Wilmington and surrounding towns.
You can find all of our 2021 municipal election coverage on this page. We'll be adding new interviews throughout October, so check back for more as we get closer to Election Day, November 2. We'll also have election results here — as well as post-election analysis.
Editor's note: Kure Beach's election is uncontested, with all three incumbent candidates running unopposed; due to time constraints, we did not interview those candidates.
