Candidate filing for city and school district elections without a primary has closed Aug. 11 following two weeks of being open for candidates. Some of this November's upcoming off-year elections are sizing up to be more competitive than others.

Incumbents top challengers throughout northern Dakota County
Tuesday's election left the makeup of most municipal bodies very much the same in northern Dakota County, except for West St. Paul.
The St. Paul suburb will have a new mayor come January, unseating John Zanmiller who's served in the city's top spot since 2005. A Hennepin County Corrections career probation/parole officer, Zanmiller also served on the council for two years prior to his mayorship.
