CLEVELAND — Tuesday, Cleveland voters decided who advanced to the general election for 10 of the city’s wards. While many of the races had multiple opponents squaring off, only two from each race went on to the November ballot.

Out of the 10 wards on the ballot, eight of them had incumbents in the race. The incumbents claimed the most votes in every race, except for Ward 4 which was previously held by Councilman Ken Johnson who can no longer hold office. Johnson was found guilty of federal corruption charges in late July. Despite that, he remained on the ballot and came in fifth place.

Here is a look at who advances to the November election from each ward.
