By Nicholas Elmes -

A flurry of last minute filing by incumbent candidates has filled out the ballot for the November municipal elections.

In King, incumbent Jack Warren is running unopposed for mayor. Incumbent council members Dillard Burnette and Brian Carico will face challengers Thomas Enterline and Rick McGraw in the race for two council seats.

In Danbury, voters will see some familiar names on the ballot as incumbent Janet Whitt is running unopposed for mayor and incumbent council members Gary East and Steve Shelton are running unopposed for two council seats.

The most contested race will be in Walnut Cove this year.

Mayor Lynn Lewis is running unopposed for reelection as mayor, but the race for the two Board of Commissioners seats boasts six candidates, including two incumbents.

Kim Lewis and Elwood Mabe will be fighting to win reelection against challengers Charles Mitchell, Charles Byron, Danny Hairston and Sandra Hazelwood.
