The 2022 mayoral election in Charlotte, North Carolina is scheduled to be held on April 26, 2022, or May 17 if there is a federal second primary in the state. This represents a delay from the original schedule of the election, which would ordinarily have taken place in November of 2021. Delays in the United States Census prompted delays for cities in the state that elect city council members by district in odd-numbered years. Charlotte's City Council had the option of holding the mayoral election on schedule in 2021 but voted to hold all elections at the same time. Party primaries are scheduled for March 8, 2022. [1]

The incumbent Mayor, Democrat Vi Lyles, was first elected in 2017 and re-elected in 2019. She is eligible to seek re-election again.
