Four of the seven Cary Town Council seats are up for grabs.

The town’s mayoral seat, two district seats and the at-large district seat held by Lori Bush will all appear on the ballot this fall.

The mayor and the at-large seat are elected by everyone within the town, while district candidates are voted on by people who live in that district. The terms are for four years.

Cary’s municipal election is Oct. 8, 2019, and early voting starts on Sept. 18.

Here are the candidates who filed. An asterisk designates an incumbent.
