LANCASTER—The 2014 town elections here, as of 7 p.m. Tuesday, will include a few new faces, several incumbents seeking re-election, and, in some cases, no one to vote for on May 6.

However, due to the winter storm Monday, the filing deadline was extended by the Virginia State Board of Elections from Tuesday to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, reported voter registrar Susan Jett.

In Kilmarnock, Mae Umphlett is challenging incumbent Raymond Booth in the race for mayor. Three candidates seek three seats on council, including incumbent Emerson Gravatt, former mayor Curtis Smith and newcomer Chris Allen.

In Irvington, four candidates filed for three council seats, including incumbents Wayne Nunnally and Jerry Latell; Mike Merrill, who was appointed last fall, and William Evans.

Frances Westbrook and Michelle Lybarger filed for the special election in Irvington to fill the two remaining years of a four-year term.

In White Stone, no candidates declared for mayor. There are three seats up for election on council, and only two declared candidates. Incumbents Irving Brittingham and Joseph Salikis seek re-election.

Jett said the deadline to register to vote in the May 6 election is Monday, April 14. To register, call the voter registrar’s office at 462-5277. The office is on the lower floor of the County Administration Building, 8311 Mary Ball Road, Lancaster.
