BRUNSWICK COUNTY — A little more than 81,600 people can cast ballots in the county’s municipal elections but when all precincts closed Tuesday evening, around 18.57% made it to the polls.

In Southport, the numbers remain tight as Mayor Joe Pat Hatem is running for re-election against Rich Alt, who has served on the board of alderman for the last two years. The candidates are separated by three votes, with Hatem in the lead. However, final results won’t be canvassed by the local board of election until Friday, Nov. 17, 11 a.m.

The Southport Board of Alderman also has a new makeup with Marc Spencer beating out incumbent Tom Lombardi in ward one, and Rebecca Azzato Kelley finishing ahead of incumbent John Allen from ward two; Lowe Davis has been re-elected in ward two as well.

Nearby on Bald Head Island, the village council has Jerry Maggio and Ginnie White tied for the two open seats; both are serving on council now.

Over in Oak Island, Bill Craft will retain his seat on council, while Terri Carter and Bob Ciullo are taking over from Charlie Blalock and Sheila Bell, who did not seek re-election.

Leland also retained its mayor in Brenda Bozeman and council members Veronica Cater and Bob Campbell.

Below are the results of all the elections across Brunswick County municipalities.
