It's official. The filing period for Durham's mayoral elections has closed and each race has some formidable contenders.

There are three City Council seats up for election this year as well as the seat of Durham Mayor Bill Bell, who is not seeking re-election after sixteen years at the city's helm. A primary election will be held for each race on October 10 to narrow down the field for the November 7 general election. 

Here are the candidates, with links to their campaign pages (if we missed one, let us know).
