NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — This week marks the beginning of the early voting period for the Aug. 3 Metro Nashville elections, as well as some special elections for statewide seats.

Starting at 8 a.m. Friday, July 14, registered voters in Davidson County can cast their ballot in the races for mayor, vice mayor, councilmember at large, and district council member, securing 42 different elected officials in their seats for the next four years.

Additionally, voters in Tennessee House District 51 will vote in their primary for a replacement for the late Rep. Bill Beck, who died unexpectedly of a heart attack at the beginning of June; while voters in District 52 will vote for someone to fill the unexpired term of Rep. Justin Jones, who was expelled from the Tennessee General Assembly earlier this year. He was subsequently reappointed to his seat in an interim basis by the Metro Council and is seeking his seat back.

Those running in the District 51 primaries are David C. Hooven for the Republican side and Aftyn Behn and Anthony Davis running for the Democrats.

Justin Jones will face off with Republican Laura Nelson in the District 52 special general election.

There are 12 different candidates running for mayor, including current councilmembers and state elected officials. Those on the ballot are Natisha Brooks, Fran Bush, State Sen. Heidi Campbell, Bernie Cox, Jim Gingrich, Sharon W. Hurt, Stephanie Johnson, Freddie O’Connell, Alice Rolli, Vivian Wilhoite, Matthew A. Wiltshire and Jeff Yarbro.

Metro Nashville voters will also decide between two candidates for vice mayor. Incumbent VM Jim Shulman is running for another term, but he is being challenged by current Councilmember Angie E. Henderson.

The Council At Large race is the most crowded, with 21 different candidates running for five seats, including some incumbents. Candidates on the ballot for at large CM positions are Burkley Allen, Tony Chapman, Chris Cheng, Chris Crofton, Stephen Downs, Quin Evans-Segall, Robbie E.
