The filing deadline passed Monday without any additional candidates filing for election to the Lawrence City Commission.
Six candidates have filed for the election, meaning that a primary election will not be required. City ordinance requires a primary when the number of candidates is more than two times the number of open seats.
The six candidates are attorney and nonprofit board member Brad Finkeldei; Kansas Army National Guard officer and planning commissioner Rob Sands; neighborhood leader and city board member Ken Easthouse; social advocate and community board member Joey Hentzler; retired auditor and community volunteer Boley; and neighborhood leader and community board member Courtney Shipley.
The general election will be Tuesday, Nov. 5.
