Dubuque city council primary elections

Posted: Updated:

Today marks the first city council primary election in a decade for Dubuque. People have been heading out to the polls to narrow down the field for the ward one city council seat.

Ward one includes areas of the south and west end of the city.

The three candidates are Lou Oswald, John Pregler and Brett Shaw.

The current council member, Kevin Lynch, is not seeking another term.

Tuesday's election is to narrow the candidates from three to two, for the general election next month.

"You should vote in every election, but the primary election we're narrowing it down since there's three candidates -- so if you live in ward one and there's a candidate you really wanna see on the November 7th ballot, because that's the candidate that you want to go on and win the council ward one seat, you wanna vote today," said Jenny Hillary, deputy commissioner for Dubuque County. 

Polls close at 8 p.m. 

The general election is on November 7th.
