2020 Jefferson County Municipal Elections

Three Jeffco Cities Pick Mayors as Six Municipalities Hold Runoffs on Oct. 6

Voters in Center Point, Fairfield and Homewood will choose mayors on Tuesday, Oct. 6, as six municipalities in Jefferson County hold runoff elections.

In addition to those runoffs for mayor, residents of Fairfield, Homewood, Hoover, Lipscomb and Tarrant will elect city council members.

Twenty-seven cities and towns around Jefferson County held elections Aug. 25. The runoffs feature contests in which no candidate got a majority of the votes.

Homewood will be electing a new mayor, while incumbents will be seeking reelection in Center Point and Fairfield.

Incumbent Scott McBrayer finished third on Aug. 25 in a three-way field for mayor of Homewood. City Council member Patrick McClusky led the voting and will face political newcomer Chris Lane in the runoff.

In Center Point, Mayor Tom Henderson led four candidates in the first election but failed to garner a majority. Henderson has been mayor since the city’s first election in 2002, and challenger Bobby Scott has served one term on the City Council.

Fairfield Mayor Eddie Penney topped a field of seven candidates in August and will face Micheal K. Williams, a program director at Miles College, in the runoff.

The polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. in each of the cities.
