CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Voters overwhelmingly approved two bond packages.

One of those bond package was for Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools totaling $290 million to pay for construction, renovations and upgrades.

The other $210 million was for central Piedmont Community College for new classrooms and labs.

It was a Democratic sweep for the Charlotte City Council at-large race.

All four democrats beat four republicans -- and one libertarian --to maintain the democrats' nine to two majority on the City Council.

Michael Barnes was the top vote getter. Followed by Vi Alexander Lyles, David Howard and Claire Fallon.
