There are four candidates in the race for mayor, including incumbent Mayor Jim McCarron, who is running for his fourth term. McCarron is challenged by current councilmen Bradley Wantz and Donald Frazier, as well as a former councilman, Paul Chamberlain.

Wantz and Frazier would have been up for re-election to the council, but since they chose to run for mayor, their seats are now open, with three candidates vying for those two spots: Barry Guckes, Daniel Haines and Darryl Hale.

Absentee ballots will be available by April 15. The election will be held from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on May 6, at the Taneytown Police Department at 120 E. Baltimore St.
