Tuesday's election, which could have record low turnout, features a small field of five candidates for the four at-large council seats and contested elections in just four of the nine district races (Baker vs. Palmer in District 3, Yancey vs. Campbell in District 4, McCarthy vs. Sanon in District 5, Jackson vs. Clemons in District 7). Here are some articles about the races:
