There are plenty of choices in several Jefferson City Council races. In Ward 2, incumbent Shawn Schulte faces Blake Marcus. In the 3rd Ward, former Councilman Len Stella meets Ken Hussey. In the 4th Ward, incumbent Bill Luebbert is challenged by Carlos Graham. The 1st Ward race was settled in the primary, when James Branch captured more than 50% of the vote.
Incumbents Doug Whitehead and Dennis Nicholson are on the Jefferson City school board ballot, along with newcomer Harold Coots. Two of them will claim seats.
Several other Cole County towns and school districts have contested races as well.
