WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - During Tuesday night's meeting, city council decided to look into changing the way council members are elected.
Right now they must receive a majority of the votes to win a seat, or they face a run-off election.
Mayor pro tem Jim Quinn, who has been involved in several run-offs, said the city could save up to $70,000 each run-off by eliminating that requirement.
Wilmington City Council is now considering passing an ordinance to amend the current election law and do away with run offs.
