These 3 Maps Show Where Roanoke's City Council Candidates Were Most Popular

Thanks to a new law, voters, politicians and others can pinpoint how well candidates fared across Roanoke’s diverse neighborhoods.

While Republican Nick Hagen failed to win a seat on Roanoke City Council this month, he was voters’ top choice across six of the city’s 20 precincts.

And though Democrat Peter Volosin edged out Hagen, Volosin fell short of clinching first or second in any precinct.

That’s among the findings in data released last week showing where candidates were most popular across Roanoke. Nine candidates ran for three regular Council seats in the Nov. 8 election.
