The deadline for local elections was Aug. 28. Several contested races have emerged with new and familiar names, and one city saw no candidates file for three city council positions.

Gordon Larson and Sam Palmer, the top two candidates in the May election for Grant County commissioner, will face off in the Nov. 6 general election.

A four-way race for three seats in the John Day City Council includes three incumbents and a challenger who served as mayor and councilor.

In Prairie City, Mayor Jim Hamsher did not file for re-election, and two candidates are vying to take his place. Six candidates have filed for three seats on the city council, including one incumbent.

A three-way race for two city council seats will take place in Mt. Vernon, and two contested races are lined up for Long Creek — three candidates for Position 3 and two candidates for Position 4.

No candidates filed for three seats on the Monument City Council.
