VOTER GUIDE: 2022 Greensboro municipal election

Election Day is July 26. Greensboro residents will decide on a mayor, city council members, and more.

GREENSBORO, N.C. — The race is on for mayor, city council at-large, multiple city council districts, and more in the city of Greensboro.  

It’s important to know the July 2022 election is a general election, which means the results of this election are final. 

Only those who live within Greensboro city limits can participate in the July 26 General Municipal Election.

You have the option to vote yes or no for each individual bond. The big question is how will these bonds be paid for?

The projects would require a property tax increase.

Greensboro city council already approved a budget that anticipated the bonds passing and included an increase in the tax rate. 

"It's not really dependent on the outcome of the election, but because of the unique timing of this bond vote, council had to adopt the budget before the vote on the bond had taken place," City of Greensboro Budget Director Jon Decker said. "So, regardless of whether the bond pass or not the tax rate would remain the same, but we would have the opportunity to adjust it in future years depending on the outcome."

Since the increase is on property taxes, it would impact everyone differently. 

"If you have a $200,000 home, the increase would cost you about $25 per year," Decker used as an example.
