In dozen of counties across the state, municipal elections were held this Tuesday and in this week's North Carolina News Round, host Jeff Tiberii covers a few key results, including the election of Leonardo Williams as the next mayor of Durham.

Also part of this hour's coverage: the resignation of State Auditor Beth Wood, following an indictment for alleged personal use of a state vehicle. Plus, abortion and legalized marijuana gains in Virginia and Ohio elections and what they might mean for future North Carolina ballots.
