At least two Summerville officials said they would seek re-election this year and a third isn't sure.
The mayoral post and two council seats will come up for election on Nov. 7. 
Mayor Harry Harvey said he is seeking another term in office. He's been mayor for six years. He's also served two years as a city councilman.
Council seats one and two are also up for grabs. Councilman David Ford, who currently holds seat one, said he plans to seek re-election.
Ford wants to work on projects that will improve the downtown and other areas. He's especially proud that a sidewalk has been installed down Highland Avenue. 
Councilman Lloyd "Buddy" Windle, who currently holds seat two, is not sure if he will run again.
Monday, Windle said he will "probably," run. During previous election cycles, Councilman Windle was slow to commit on whether he would seek re-election. Windle has served on the city council for 10 years. 
Summerville residents interested in running for mayor or one of these council posts can qualify at city hall sometime during Aug. 21-25.  Qualifying starts at 9 a.m. each day and ends at 4:30 p.m.
The qualifying fee for mayor is $216. The council seat qualifying fee is $108.
Absentee ballots will be available Oct. 13 through Nov. 3 at city hall. 
The deadline to register to vote in this election is Oct. 10. Visit city hall to register.
