One of the races that could shift the balance of power is in District 98. Voters from Davidson, Cornelius and parts of Huntersville will select between incumbent Rep. John Bradford, a Republican, and Democrat challenger Christy Clark.
Incumbent Democratic commissioner Laura Meier is running for reelection to District 5, the south Charlotte area. She’s facing a familiar face -- Republican Matthew Ridenhour, who held the seat for six years. Meier beat Ridenhour by a little more than 2,500 votes in 2020.
