Inside the numbers: How Glenn Funk beat Rob McGuire and Diane Lance

Via Pith:

* North Nashville turned the election for Funk and a number of African-American judicial candidates. Only one precinct in the city cast more than a thousand ballots in the election: Cathedral of Praise in Bordeaux, where a whopping 1,355 voters turned out. At that location and two other key North Nashville precincts, Bordeaux Library and Whites Creek Fire Hall, turnout was more than 25 percent compared to a county-wide average of 9 percent. From just those three boxes, Funk had a lead of more than 500 votes. From just council districts 1, 2 and 3 — all north of the river — the totals gave Funk a more than 1,100-vote lead over McGuire. In a race with only 35,000 ballots cast, that's game-changing.
