Counties and seats are also available on the Mammoth Town Council.

So has Bishop City Councilman Jeff Griffiths and Bishop resident Russ Aldridge. In District 4, incumbent Marty Fortney has stepped forward to run and so has Independence resident Nina Weisman. In District 5, incumbent Richard Cervantes has taken out petitions and so has Matthew Kingsley and Jim Gentry, all of Lone Pine.
In Mono County, Clerk-Recorder Lynda Roberts said that these seats are up for election: District 2 held by Hap Hazard, District 3 held by Vikki Bauer, and District 4 held by Tim Hansen. Roberts said that at this point Hap Hazard has picked up petitions to run and so has Bob Peters for District 4. Also on the ballot for June is the seat of Superior Court Judge Stan Eller.
