Early voting for five seats on the Knoxville City Council is underway. Election Day is Tuesday, November 7. The August primary narrowed the field from 30 candidates to ten - sort of. A second-place tie in the Fourth District forced the incumbent city council to make a choice. This they did, sending Harry Tindell on to the general election slate. Amelia Parker decided to stay in the race as a write-in option.
