For voters in Barrackville, polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. To cast votes, Barrackville residents may go to the town hall.

Barrackville is holding elections for mayor, recorder and five council seats. The positions sit for two-year terms.

Candidates running for mayor include incumbent Roy Meeks III and Douglas Ice. Candidates running for the five council seats include Michelle Clyde, Bill Greathouse, incumbent Robert Hollandsworth, Randy Ice, Michael Jordan III, incumbent Charles Moore, incumbent Jeffrey Mullenax and incumbent David Tonkin.

Steven Richard Hall is running unopposed for town recorder.

Once the polls are closed, workers will tabulate the results, which will be posted outside the town hall. The results posted Tuesday are unofficial results and will not be made official until the canvass, which occurs Monday, June 16.

The representatives for Millerville and Pleasant Valley will serve four-year terms, while the mayor, two members of the council-at-large position and the Kingmont representative on council will serve two-year terms.
