Whitehall voters will choose members of City Council and the school board Nov. 7 -- if they haven't already.

In-person absentee voting is open now at the Franklin County Board of Elections, 1700 Morse Road. Hours are 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday, Nov. 2-3; 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 4; 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 5; and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday, Nov. 6.

Local polls are open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Election Day, Nov. 7.

In the school board race, five candidates are seeking three seats; two candidates each are facing off in each of the city's four council wards.

The school board field includes incumbents Leo Knoblauch and Blythe Wood along with challengers Tiffanie Charles, Darryl Hammock Jr. and Mone't Smith.

Incumbent board member Walter Armes is not seeking re-election after a quarter-century of service to the board.

Voters will see only one pair of City Council candidates on their ballots, depending on their ward of residence.

In Ward 1, Gerald Dixon is challenging incumbent Chris Rodriguez.

In Ward 2, Joanna Heck is challenging incumbent Lee Stahley.

In Ward 3, incumbent Larry Morrison faces a challenge from Paul Werther.

In Ward 4, candidates Lori Elmore and Leslie LaCorte are vying to succeed incumbent Van Gregg, who is precluded from seeking re-election because of term limits.

City Council's at-large seats will be up for election in 2019.
