In Shalimar, voters will elect a mayor and two town commissioners. In Cinco Bayou, voters will elect three Town Council members while Crestview voters will elect a city clerk and three City Council members.

Crestview City Councilman Charles Baugh and City Clerk Elizabeth Miller Roy have prefiled to run for their seats.

“It’s kind of strange because we’re interrupted by a federal holiday, and there is no provision in the law to extend it to accommodate for that holiday,” Lux said.

Elections offices in Fort Walton Beach and Crestview will be closed on New Year’s Day, he noted.
