The election for Macon and Bibb County takes place September 17th.

Voters in Houston County's three cities will have some choices to make Tuesday, November 5th.

Perry, Centerville and Warner Robins opened qualifying for candidates last week.

All the names will appear on the November ballot, but in Perry, the choices are limited, according to the Houston County Board of Elections.

For all the open seats, only the incumbents want to run.

For the Perry mayor's office, current mayor Jimmy Faircloth signed-up.

In District 1, Post 1 incumbent Phyllis Bynum-Grace will be the candidate.

In District 2, Post 1 incumbent Joe Posey qualified.

In District 3, Post 1 incumbent Randall Walker is the candidate.

In Centerville, only current mayor John Harley wants that job.

The same goes for the council seat in Post 1, where only incumbent Cameron Andrews qualified.

For Post 2, two candidates put their name in the hat. They are incumbent Randall Wright, and challenger, J. Michael Evans.

There's also a question about the senior tax exemption on the ballot.

In Warner Robins, as 13WMAZ reported last week, the field for mayor is crowded.

Former councilman Mike Brashear, Robins Air Force Base civilian Chuck Chalk, and caregiver Eva Folse qualified for the race. Councilman Daron Lee, former city Public Works director Joe Musselwhite, and retired city firefighter Randy Toms also want the city's top position.

For City Councils Post 1 seat, incumbent Mike Daley, Charlie Scott, Chuck Shaheen and Jeffrey Walker signed-up.

In the Warner Robins Post 3 council race, incumbent Paul Shealy will be challenged by Keith Lauritsen.

In Post 5, Clifford Holmes, Liberty Kovach and Richard Chef Weldon want to fill that seat.

Qualifying for a special election in Warner Robins opened Tuesday morning and runs until Thursday at 12:30 p.m. That's to fill the seat of Post 4 councilman Mike Brashear. He had to resign his seat to run for the mayor's office, because he had two years left on his council term.

So far, only one candidate, Tim Thomas, has qualified for the Post 4 special election.

There are no county-wide elections in Houston on the November 5th election date.
