At 15, Council District D, the seat being vacated by mayoral candidate Dwight Boykins, has the most candidates. The highest profile race, the race for mayor, has 12 candidates

Kendall Baker, Dwight Boykins, Derrick Broze, Tony Buzbee, Naoufal Houjami, Bill King, Sue Lovell, Victoria Romero, Demetria Smith, Johnny Taylor, Sylvester Turner, and Roy J. Vasquez all filed to run for mayor.
