Voters in two wards will have a chance to pick who should represent them on Sidmouth Town Council on May 6.
As well as voting in the Devon County Council and Police and Crime Commissioner elections, voters will be asked to elect three new town councillors.
There are currently vacancies for two councillors in the Sidmouth South Ward and a single councillor in the Salcombe Regis ward.
The candidates are as follows:

There was a vacancy in the Sidmouth (East) ward, however this is uncontested as Steven Kendall-Torry was the only candidate and will be duly elected to the town council.
In Newton Poppleford, there were no candidates to come forward to fill the vacancy on the parish council.
Voters in the village will choose whether or not a neighbourhood plan should be used by the district council to decide planning applications in Newton Poppleford.
