All incumbents filed for re-election with one challenger. The last day to file for elections was last Thursday, Aug. 11.

If no challengers had filed for election, Landrum would not have held an election this year.

For this year’s election, which will be held on Nov. 8, Landrum residents will choose three council members. Residents must also vote on a referendum on whether or not to allow Landrum restaurants to serve alcohol on Sundays.

Residents will have until Oct. 8 to register to vote.
