Today's election in Ocean City features seven candidates battling for three open city council seats.
Officials say turnout has been on the light side thus far, but they expect it to exceed 25 percent by the time the polls close.
What's at stake is a potential shift in the voting majority if challenger Brent Ashley and incumbent Margaret Pillas both win seats.
Both candidates have been running on a very conservative platform.
"I'm not trying to shake anyone up, I'm trying to change it," Pillas says. "We gotta look at the future, and I think the future is dismal in terms of the budget."
Mayor Rick Meehan was re-elected again as he ran unopposed for the third straight time.
