Four people are in the running for two seats. They include incumbents Mayor Pat Eklund and Councilwoman Denise Athas and retired teacher and community activist Eleanor Sluis and Creekside Bakery co-owner Steve Jordan.
Who are these candidates and what vision do they have for the community?
Steve Jordan, a newcomer to politics, presents himself as a straight shooter who listens to people. He's against Measure F and rejects the state mandate on where to build affordable housing.
Sluis, who ran in 2011, is advocating for pension reform, better zoning laws and no large recreational facility at Hamilton.
Athas and Eklund, meanwhile, are playing up their experience in local politics and familiarity with the issues.
Stay tuned for detailed Q&As with all the candidates
On Thursday, the Novato Chamber of Commerce will hold a forum at the school district offices to give the candidates a chance to introduce themselves and answer questions from the public. The forum will be held at 1015 Seventh St at 5pm.
