The Common Council seat vacated on Sept. 11 by Josh Glasstetter ’01 will be contested for the first time by two students, The Sun learned from reports issued yesterday.

Peter Mack made himself eligible yesterday to appear on the ballot after filing a petition as an independent candidate. Mack is believed to be running with the East Hill Unity Party alongside Joan Spieholz ’73, who is campaigning to maintain her seat in the Fourth Ward versus Carolyn Peterson, a Democrat.

Jamison Moore ’04 announced his candidacy on Monday after receiving the nomination of the Fourth Ward Democratic Committee.

To vote in the local elections on Nov. 6, one must be registered as a resident of the Fourth Ward — which encompasses central Collegetown and West Campus. Students residing in these neighborhoods have until next Friday to register in person at the Board of Elections or by mail. Completed forms, including change-of-address forms, must be completed by Oct. 12 and received by Oct. 17.

The Tompkins County Board of Elections office is located at 128 E. Buffalo St. in Ithaca. The office is open Mon. – Fri. from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
