Voters will begin casting their ballots on August 4 for Phoenix mayor and in five of the city's eight city council districts.

Phoenix election officials will be mailing out about 290,000 early ballots, which is about three times the actual number of ballots cast in the last mayor's race in September 2007.

Vying to lead Phoenix for the next four years are Anna Brennan, Wes Gullett, Claude Mattox, Peggy Neely, Greg Stanton and Jennifer Wright.
