About 10% of registered voters cast their ballots in Durham's primary municipal elections on Tuesday. The top two vote recipients in each category will go on to the election in November.

Here's how the candidates fared in each category, with all but about 56 precincts reporting as of Tuesday evening.

Mayor: Elaine O'Neal and Javiera Caballero

Durham Council, Ward I: DeDreana Freeman (incumbent) and Marion T. Johnson

Durham Council, Ward II: Mark-Anthony Middleton (incumbent), Sylvester Williams

Durham Council, Ward III: No primary

Only two candidates are running in Ward III: Leonardo Williams and AJ Williams. They will both automatically proceed to November's election. The incumbent is Pierce Freelon, who is not running for re-election.
