LaWana Mayfield (pictured) won her race for Charlotte, N.C., City Council, becoming that city’s first openly LGBT elected official.  She was heavily favored after ousting the incumbent Democrat in the primary earlier this year.

Bruce Harris was elected mayor of Chatham Borough, N.J.  He’s likely the nation’s first openly gay, African American, Republican mayor.

Mary Doran has been elected to the School Board in St. Paul, Minn.

Pedro Segarra easily retains his post as mayor of Hartford, Conn.  His main opponents dropped out of the race earlier this year.

Stay tuned for more updates.
