NORFOLK, Va. — Voters in several cities and towns in Hampton Roads and on the Eastern Shore will be at the polls on Tuesday, May 19.

In Hampton Roads, people will elect mayors in Hampton and Chesapeake. Both cities have council seats open, as do Norfolk, Newport News, Williamsburg, Smithfield, Franklin, Courtland, and Ivor.

Several towns on the Eastern Shore will elect people to their respective councils, too.

Elections to school boards take place in Hampton Roads and on the Eastern Shore.
