If you want a spot on the Bradenton City Council, you have only a week to qualify for a spot on the Nov. 3 ballot.
So far, the only candidates to qualify for the nonpartisan races are incumbent Marianne Barnebey in Ward 2, who currently is unopposed; and Joel V. (Joe) Henry Sr. in Ward 4. Incumbent Bemis Smith has yet to qualify.
Also up in the election is the Ward 3 seat, currently held by incumbent by Patrick Roff. Neither he nor announced challenger Richard O'Brien have yet to qualify for the ballot, according to the Manatee County election supervisor's Web site.
The qualifying period ends at noon on Sept. 15.
