JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Each of the city's 14 districts is represented by its own council member elected by voters in that district. Each candidates' party affiliation is listed on the ballot, but the city holds unitary elections, so Duval County registered voters of any party can vote for any candidate.
Incumbent Councilman Garrett Dennis is challenged by Marcellus Daniel Holmes III in this district that runs from the near Westside south through Cedar Hills, along Blanding Boulevard to Interstate 295.
