Voters will select a mayor and two city commissioners in a city general election set for Nov. 6.
Mayor Dona Stebbins and Commissioner Diane Jovick-Kuntz are running for re-election. Commissioner Sandy Hinz decided not to run again.
Other candidates for mayor are Susan Kahn, Ed McKnight and Larry H. Steele.
Additional candidates for city commissioner are Elna Hensley, Bill Bronson, Stuart Lewin, Michael Winters and Mary Jolley.
This will be the first election in modern times in which Great Falls voters will use a single polling place — at Montana ExpoPark. Absentee voting will begin Oct. 17, but voters can request absentee ballots now from the Cascade County Elections Office, 325 2nd Ave. N. No primary election was held this year.
The Tribune plans to run one question and answer from the candidates each week prior to the election. Questions were devised by Tribune staff and Tribune readers.
