Chattanooga voters go to the polls today to elect a new mayor and cast ballots for all nine seats on the City Council.
The polls are open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Just over six percent of those on the voting rolls cast ballots during early voting Feb. 15-28.
Former state Senator Andy Berke, former city employee Guy Satterfield and Chester Heathington are running for mayor.
There are a number of spirited City Council races, including contests to replace Deborah Scott in District 1 and Sally Robinson in District 2.
A runoff election will be necessary in races where none of the candidates gets more than 50 percent of the vote.
Jack Benson in District 4 has four challengers, and Manny Rico in District 7 has three.
Former City Councilman Yusuf Hakeem is running against Peter Murphy in District 9, while Councilman Andrae McGary is opposed by former city official Moses Freeman in District 8. Pam Ladd is opposed by Ken Smith in District 3.
There is also a Collegedale election with three incumbents running for three seats. They are Debbie Baker, Tim Johnson and Katie Lamb.
Only Russell Gilbert in District 5 and Carol Berz in District 6 are unopposed.
