In Kilmarnock, incumbent Raymond Booth and council member Mae Umphlett are running for mayor.

Five candidates are vying for three seats on council, including incumbents Shawn Donahue and Emerson Gravatt, as well as Chris Allen, James Evans Sr. and former mayor Curtis Smith.

In Irvington, four candidates are seeking three council seats, including incumbents Jerry Latell, Mike Merrill and Wayne Nunnally, as well as former mayor William Evans.

Three candidates filed in a special election to fill two years remaining on a four-year Irvington term, including James Haynie, Michelle Lybarger and Frances Westbrook.

In White Stone, councilman Randy Reeves filed for mayor. Incumbents Irving Brittingham and Joseph Salikis filed for three open seats on council.

The deadline to register to vote in the May 6 election is Monday, April 14, said Jett.
