Early voting starts for Council races

Early voting kicks off today for two Knoxville City Council seats, and the county yawns. (Technically, five are up for re-election, but only two - have challengers.)

Nick Della Volpe (4th District) faces Rick Staples and Daniel Brown (6th District) faces Pete Drew.

The two top vote-getters move on to the Nov. 5 general election. The races are nonpartisan and early voting runs through Sept. 19. The primary is on Sept. 24.

You can get the times and schedules, right smack here, (and a copy of the ballot, right smack here), although I'm not sure why anyone will show up as all of the candidates are going to advance anyway.

UPDATE: Elections stud Cliff Rodgers reached out to Knoxviews this morning, letting the site know that since there is an official write-in candidate, there is reason for an election. Cause, you know, a write-in candidate actually has a snowball's chance.
