You’ve done your part at the polls and now we know who will represent Metro for the next four years — and that includes Nashville’s next mayor.

Here’s a breakdown of the Sept. 14 Metro Runoff Election, sourced from the Davidson County Election Commission’s unofficial results with 100% of precincts reported.

🗳️ Freddie O’Connell was elected as mayor

Freddie O’Connell has been elected mayor after securing 64.3% of the votes. Alice Rolli, his opponent, received 35.7% of the vote. O’Connell has been the council member for District 19 since 2015 and previously served on the Metro Transit Authority’s board. He will be sworn in as the 10th mayor of Metro Nashville.

🗳️ Meet all five at-large council members

Delishia Porterfield, Quin Evans-Segall, Burkley Allen, and Olivia Hill were the top four vote-getters. As a reminder, incumbent Zulfat Suara secured enough votes on Aug. 3 to avoid the runoff.

🗳️ Runoff district council races

Out of Nashville’s 35 district council seats, Districts 4, 11, and 29 were undecided in the Aug. 3 election. Here’s the breakdown:

  • District 4: Mike Cortese (53.4%), Davette Blalock (46.6%)
  • District 11: Jeff Eslick (50.4%), Eric A. Patton (49.6%)
  • District 29: Tasha Ellis (62.9%), John Reed (37.1%)
