Today is the final day of early voting ahead of the Dec. 15 runoff election, which sees incumbent Council Members Jimmy Flannigan, in District 6, and Alison Alter, in District 10 facing radically different challengers.

Mackenzie Kelly, who is running against Flannigan, is a Republican who opposes the direction of council on many of its priority issues, including the land use code, police reform and homelessness. Jennifer Virden, who is running against Alter, has a platform that is similarly oriented.

The Austin Bulldog wrote about both races, diving into the funding behind them, each candidate's campaign issues, the endorsements granted and how the candidates have performed at recent forums. You can read more in D6 runoff: Flannigan vs Kelly and D10 runoff: Alter vs Virden.
