The field for Bluffton's municipal election is set.

Eight candidates are vying for two seats on the town council. Given councilwoman Karen Lavery's recent decision not to seek re-election, there will be at least one new face on the council.

In the race for the town's top position, incumbent Mayor Lisa Sulka is seeking a third term and will be challenged by Beaufort County Councilwoman Cynthia Bensch.

Here's a chance to meet the candidates you will choose from in the Nov. 3 election. Click or tap on the candidate mugs for a profile of each candidate.
