What are the competitive City Council races in the general election this fall?


With the calendar turned to August and the June City Council primaries long in the rear-view mirror, political observers are turning their attention to a handful of competitive general election races taking place across the city this November.

All 51 council members are up for reelection this year, just two years after they last ran for office, due to redistricting in 2022.

Roughly two-thirds of council incumbents sailed through the June primaries without a challenger. But there were still a few competitive primaries — though two of them were for open seats.
