The Democratic primary will be held Sept. 10. There are also three Republican candidates who will appear on the ballot in November's general election.
The city Democratic Committee has not endorsed any candidates in the race, leading to this open primary. The candidates are vying for three spots on the Democratic line in November.
Registered Democrats outnumber registered Republicans in the Falls by more than three to one.
