If you want to vote in the Aug. 28 primary and haven’t yet registered, you only have four days left.
July 30 is the last day residents can register to vote in the upcoming election.
Voters will have plenty of decisions to make as nearly every race is contested.
Locally, Acacia, Palo Verde and Pine district City Council seats are up for grabs. Brittany Burback, Jason Dragon and incumbent Vicki Hunt are running in the Acacia District; incumbent Michael Finn is running unopposed in the Palo Verde District; and Denette Dunn, incumbent Carlo Leone and Randal Rains are all vying for the Pine District seat. Mayor Cathy Carlat is also running unopposed for the council’s top seat, which is elected at large.
Any council candidate who gets more than 50 percent of the votes will win outright; otherwise a runoff election will be held on Election Day, which is Nov. 6 this year.
