It’s almost time for Ashland City residents to elect a mayor and council representatives.

Saturday's municipal election is days away and 259 voted early. That accounts for about 9% of the 2,853 active registered voters, according to the latest available information from the Cheatham County Election Commission Monday.

Early voting ended today, according to the election commission.

Who's running, and important dates: Ashland City will vote for a new mayor, council members. Who's running?

Six council members — two per ward — make up the Ashland City Council, serving four-year terms in staggered elections. Council members Alwilda Binkley, Chris Kerrigan and Lisa Walker’s terms expire this month. In the Ward 1 race, Walker is opposed by Misty Holloway.

Gerald Greer faces  write-in candidate James Edgin in Ward 2, while Kerrigan is running unopposed in Ward 3.

Other council members — Daniel Anderson, Tim Adkins and Roger Jackson — are slated to serve through December 2021.

Incumbent Steve Allen is running for mayor against candidates Janet Knight and Michael W. Smith.

Still undecided? The Ashland City Times previously sent out questionnaires to candidates in contested races. Here’s our list of who responded and what they said of their views and values.
