Carter Elected St. Paul's First African American Mayor

Carter Elected St. Paul's First African American Mayor”

Local news organizations declared Carter victorious over nine other mayoral candidates Tuesday night with 96 percent of precincts reporting.

Last night in St. Paul, voters gave Melvin Carter 51 percent of their first-choice votes, granting him a historic victory on election night without the need for ranked-choice voting tabulation. Ranked-choice voting rules dictate the victor needs more than 50 percent of votes.

Democrat Melvin Carter III has been elected mayor of St. Paul. Pat Harris came in with the second most votes at just under 25 percent. For full election results in Saint Paul go here.

Below, a breakdown of where each of the top three mayoral contenders, all DFLers, in St. Paul won their first-choice votes. He will take over for current Mayor Chris Coleman, both of whom are members of the Democratic-Farmer-Labor party in Minnesota.

Carter had the backing of Gov. Mark Dayton.

As a council member, Carter lobbied the Met Council and the federal government to add additional stops to the Green Line in lower-income neighborhoods.

Carter is a fourth-generation St. Paul resident and the son of a police officer. The plan prioritizes investing in communities to prevent crime before it happens. He ran, in part, on police reform and in later days of the campaign, the Saint Paul Police Federation accused Carter of being irresponsible for not knowing the serial numbers on guns stolen from his home. Other candidates endorsed the concept, but anxious about its impact on small businesses.
