In Camarillo, voters will select two members to the City Council among 10 candidates. The deadline was extended from last Friday because incumbent F. Burrows (Bill) Esty is not seeking reelection.

Candidates who have filed since Friday are George Imrie, a financial manager; E. Larry Desha, an attorney, and George Wachold, a retired aerospace engineer.
