Shelby County Election Commissioners have certified the Memphis election ballot for Oct. 8.

These are the names to appear on that ballot for the 15 elected offices.

The commission met hours after the noon Thursday, July 23, deadline for candidates to withdraw from the ballot if they wished.

The commission rejected appeals from mayoral contender James Clingan and city council contender Joe Cooper to include them on the ballot despite them not having enough signatures on their qualifying petitions.

The commission also voted to list City Court Clerk candidate Thomas Long as Thomas Long II. He is the son of incumbent City Court Clerk Thomas Long who is not seeking re-election.

In the hours leading up to the withdrawal deadline former Shelby County Commissioner James Harvey and Brian Saulsberry withdrew from the Memphis Mayor’s race, making a field of 10 including incumbent Mayor A C Wharton Jr.

The largest field among the 13 council races is the nine contenders for council District 7 where appointed incumbent Berlin Boyd is seeking a full four-year term on the council.

Meanwhile, District 2 council candidate Marti E. Miller dropped out of that race making a field of four for the East Memphis seat incumbent Bill Boyd is giving up.

Harvey later attended the opening of mayoral candidate Jim Strickland’s campaign headquarters in Poplar Plaza and endorsed Strickland.

Here is the ballot approved Thursday by the Shelby County Election Commission.
