DELRAY BEACH — Nine candidates will vie for four of five seats on Delray Beach’s commission in the upcoming election.

With a majority of the city commission seats on the line, including the mayor’s seat, the March municipal election in Delray Beach is likely to draw a high voter turnout.

The election pits two sitting commissioners against one another in a race for the mayor’s seat. Meanwhile the other seats have drawn both former city officials and political novices.

These are the candidates who have qualified for the March 13 election:
