All three incumbents on Jonesboro’s City Council will hold onto their at-large seats.

Unofficial election returns are as follows:

  • Pat Sebo-Hand: 140
  • Bobby Lester: 139
  • Billy Powell: 128
  • Alfred Dixon: 105
  • Cameron Dixon: 81

Jonesboro’s three seats are won by a plurality, meaning that the top three vote-getters are seated. Like other Clayton County municipalities, Jonesboro conducts its elections on a nonpartisan basis. That means candidates don’t run as Democrats, Republicans, or as members of other political parties.
