Elections

Here are the unofficial election results for Wake County races

Three Wake County towns have new mayors, and several incumbents were re-elected across the county, according to unofficial results Wednesday night.

Garner has a new mayor after results show that Ken Marshburn beat incumbent Ronnie Williams by 17 percentage points.

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

In Rolesville, mayor pro tem Ronnie Currin was elected mayor. Long time mayor Frank Eagles did not seek re-election.

Some incumbents in Morrisville, Wake Forest and Wendell also lost their races for town council and board of commissioners.

Last month, Raleigh voters elected Mary-Ann Baldwin mayor.
