Columbus City Council races will look different on the ballot than in past elections.

State of play: As of this election, Council is growing from seven to nine members through the creation of nine districts across town.

  • Yes, but: Members will still be elected by the entire city's voter base, rather than just their own constituents.
  • Find your district.

Zoom in: Six of the nine districts have unopposed races on Nov. 7, including four with incumbent candidates. The three contested races:

  • 2nd District, West Side: Challengers Luis Gil vs. Nancy Day-Achauer
  • 4th District, Linden and Northland: incumbent Emmanuel Remy vs. challenger Adrienne Hood
  • 5th District, Northeast Side: incumbent Nick Bankston vs. Farxaan Jeyte
