The General Election is Nov. 2, so voters have until then to get their mail-in ballots in.

A majority of the Bainbridge Island City Council is being elected.

Mayor Rasham Nassar is facing a tough challenge from Clarence Moriwaki, who easily beat her in the August primary.

Both winners will serve four-year terms.

Appointed Councilmember Brenda Fantroy-Johnson is facing her first election with Chris Smith challenging. The winner will serve out the last two years of the term.

And Jon Quitslund, a former planning commission member, is being taken on by Kent Scott. Christy Carr did not seek reelection to the four-year term.

For BI Metro Parks and Recreation David Maron and Tom Goodlin are facing off for an unexpired two-year term.

There are also some uncontested races on the ballot.

Countywide, there are two propositions.

Proposition 1 would change Kitsap County’s elected coroner position to an appointed medical examiner.

Proposition 2 would add a 1/10th of 1% sales tax to fund a countywide emergency communications system update.

There are also three statewide advisory votes, all dealing with taxes passed by the legislature without a vote from the public.
