The 2021 Charlotte City Council Election was delayed until 2022 because the census results needed for redistricting were delayed due to COVID. Thus the mayor and City Council members elected in 2022 will only serve a one-year term. Those elected in the 2023 Election will serve full two-year terms. Current District 3 Representative Victoria Watlington is running for an at-large seat, so Steele Creek will have a new representative after this year's election.

For the 2023 Election, voters will have to show a photo ID. For more information see Voter ID Requirements.

For more information on Absentee Voting and other local election requirements see Mecklenburg County Board of Elections.
