THE QUESTION: When are the city of Annapolis elections?

Annapolis will hold primaries for mayor and city council on Sept. 20, and its general election on Nov. 8.

In the mayor's race, Democratic incumbent Ellen O. Moyer and Republican George O. Kelley Sr. do not face opposition from candidates within their own party. Still, they will appear on their respective party's ballot on Sept. 20.

Moyer is completing her first term as mayor, a post held by her ex-husband "Kip." Kelley is a former Annapolis police officer who switched political parties earlier this year.

The two candidates - as well as Independent candidate Gilbert T. Renaut - will appear on the November ballot.

In the city council race, 21 candidates have filed to run in eight wards (though one candidate, Democrat Arlene Berlin in Ward 7, has not been certified). They include 11 Democrats, 9 Republicans, and one independent.

Primaries are being held in wards 1 (Democratic), 2 (Democratic and Republican) and 3 (Democratic).
