With the Aug. 17 filing deadline now passed, the ballots for the five Austin City Council races are set, barring the addition of any write-in candidates ahead of the Nov. 3 election.

Seats are in play for City Council Districts 2, 4, 6, 7 and 10. With the exception of District 2, each race has an incumbent candidate battling for another full, four-year term on the City Council dais. District 2’s incumbent, Delia Garza, will still be on the Nov. 3 ballot, but as the Democratic nominee for Travis County attorney—a race she is expected to win.

The battle for District 10 is this year’s most crowded, with incumbent Alison Alter facing off against six challengers. District 7 incumbent Leslie Pool has only one challenger.

As of Aug. 17’s filing deadline, ballots are as follows.

District 2

  • Vanessa Fuentes

  • David Chincanchan

  • Casey Ramos

  • Alex Strenger




District 4


  • Greg Casar (incumbent)
