Correction: This article has been updated with the correct link to Houston City Council District H candidate Sonia Rivera's website.

Voters in the city of Houston will have more than 17 candidates to choose from when they cast their ballots for who should be the city's next mayor in the Nov. 7 election.

On top of that, all 16 City Council seats are up for election, and several significant ballot propositions will go before voters as well. Eleven council members are elected based on district boundaries, and voters can only vote in the race that covers the district in which they live. However, all voters can vote in the races for the five at-large council positions.

Aug. 21 was the deadline for candidates to file for a place on the ballot. Find a roundup of all candidates who have filed for city of Houston races below, and check back for Q&A’s with candidates leading up to Election Day.

Ballot propositions
  • Proposition A: If passed by voters, Proposition A would allow a member of Houston City Council to place an item on the council's weekly agenda if they have support from at least two other council members. Currently, only the mayor has the ability to place items on the agenda. Read more here.
  • Proposition B: If passed by voters, Proposition B would compel the city of Houston to amend its charter. A new section would require that for the city to maintain membership in a council of governments or metropolitan planning organization—such as the Houston-Galveston Area Council—votes on the governing board must be apportioned proportionally on the basis of population. In a council of governments or metropolitan planning organization does not comply, the city would be obligated to withdraw its membership if the voting system is not corrected within 60 days of the effective date of adoption.
