Three incumbents on the York City Council will move forward to November in bids to retain their seats.

Democrats Henry Nixon and Renee Nelson, each seeking a four-year term, earned enough votes in Tuesday's primary to appear on the general-election ballot.

A third Democratic candidate, Aaron Anderson, had withdrawn for personal reasons before the primary but still earned the third-place spot with 740 votes.

Anderson's name will not appear on the November ballot, as there are only two four-year terms up for grabs.

Democratic incumbent David Satterlee, the only person to seek a two-year term on the council, will also move on.

On the Republican side, Cynthia Martin earned 416 votes as her the party's lone candidate on the ballot for a four-year term on the council.
