Some North Carolina cities and towns held elections this week ahead of the November 2 municipal elections.

Burlington voters pared down a field of five candidates for mayor in this week's nonpartisan primary. Incumbent Mayor Ian Baltutis held a small lead over challenger Jim Butler, a city council member. Both will advance to the general election. 

It was a different story in the Jamestown primary, where incumbent Mayor Lynn Montgomery topped the field with 75 percent of the vote.

Most of the state's local governments will have elections on November 2. A few races were postponed until next year because of delays in the census. That includes the races for Greensboro's mayor and city council.
