To qualify, candidates must have resided in District 1, which mostly encompasses the southwest portion of the city. Candidates also had to fill out necessary paperwork and pay a qualifying fee of $390. Qualifying was open from Aug. 2 to 22.
Whoever wins the election will serve the remainder of Hewitt’s term, which expires Dec. 31, 2019. The election will come at no cost to the city since it coincides with state and county elections.
Election Day is set for Nov. 6.
