Registered voters in Somerton will be voting on new city leadership Tuesday.
The mayoral seat, along with three city council seats, are open.
The candidates are both incumbents and new faces.
For the mayor's seat, current Vice Mayor Arturo Magana is challenging incumbent Mayor Martin Porchas.
Three city council seats are open with six candidates vying for those positions.
Current council members Gerardo Anaya and Miguel Villalpando are seeking re-election, while Carlos Gonzalez, Francisco Vazquez, Patricia Miranda, and Arturo Vargas are hoping for council seats.
With Somerton's population at 14,528 residents, 4,567 people are registered to vote; however, only about 750 people turn out to vote, according to the Somerton city manager.
"Certainly, we always want folks to get out and vote and make their voices heard," Ben Lee said.
Those who received early ballots can return them to the Yuma County Recorder's Office located at 410 S. Maiden Lane or Somerton's Public Safety Building located at 445 E. Main St. now until 7 p.m. Tuesday.
Those who plan to vote in person can cast their ballot on election day at the Somerton Public Safety Building from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
"If any of the candidates receive 50 percent plus one vote, they will be seated in June as a newly elected council," Lee said.
The candidate receiving the least amount of votes will be eliminated, and the rest will run against each other in the May 21 General Election for the remaining open seats.
The deadline to register to vote in the General Election is April 22.
