South Whidbey voters should expect to receive ballots in their mailboxes next week.

There are several contested races in the November general election, including three positions on the Langley City Council. Burt Beusch and Christy Korrow are running for position 1, incumbent Dominique Emerson is up against challenger Bill Nesbeitt for position 2 and Peter Morton is vying for position 5 held by Thomas Gill.

Three four-year positions on the South Whidbey Parks and Recreation Board are also up for grabs, though only one is contested. Incumbent Matt Simms is being challenged by Bigi Giese. Incumbent Mark Helpenstell and newcomer Joshua Coleman are running unopposed for positions 2 and 3, respectively.

Andrea Downs is running unopposed for District 2 (Freeland/Langley) on the South Whidbey School Board, while Julie Hadden — who currently has the district 2 position — is running unopposed for the at-large district 5 seat.

Adrienne Blythe Hawley is also running unopposed for position 1 on the South Whidbey Fire/EMS board of commissioners, a six-year term.

Ballot boxes can be found in three different locations on South Whidbey this year. They are located at the Ken’s Korner Shopping Center in Clinton, the Langley Post Office in Langley and Trinity Lutheran Church in Freeland.
