Hampton is qualifying its candidates for mayor and four at-large city council member seats through Aug. 25.
Incumbents are Mayor Steve Hutchison and city council members Mary Ann Mitcham, Charlie Hearn and Marty Meeks. Chris Moore stepped down earlier this month.
Eleven candidates are headed for the Nov. 7 ballot so far.
In the mayor’s race are Hutchison and retiree Wayne Selman, the city’s former water pollution control plant director.
Mitcham has filed paperwork to relinquish a future four-year seat in favor of the two-year term left in Moore’s absence.
On the ballot with her will be Timothy Branch of Battery Route Sales and retired military officer Elton Brown.
Vying for the four-year seats are incumbent Meeks, student Errol Mitchell, retiree Willie Turner, community volunteer Stephanie Bodie, legal consultant Shawn Black and Alford Williams, head women’s basketball coach at West Georgia Technical College.
