Matthew Robinson is the only incumbent candidate for council. He will be challenged by Forrest Genthner, Benjamin Hartwell, James Means and Bruce Roullard.

Philip Gagnon and John Pressey, whose terms are both up, are not running for reelection.

Incumbent Kyle Currier will be in a four-way race for two seats on the Gorham School Committee, along with Kyle Bailey, John Hamilton Doyle and Pamela Irish.

Roger Marchand's term has expired, and he is not running for reelection.

All terms, on both council and school board, are for three years.

Nomination papers were due to the town on Monday.
