Four candidates are hoping to win a seat to represent Keith and Cullen at council level.
A by-election was called after stalwart Ron Shepherd stood down earlier this month after spending 20 years serving his community in the chambers.
Yesterday Moray Council confirmed the names of those who have been nominated for the forthcoming Keith and Cullen ward election, which has been scheduled for November 21.
Keith resident Jock McKay has been chosen as the SNP candidate to try and bolster the current minority administration’s ranks within the chambers.
Meanwhile, Portknockie resident Laura Powell has been nominated as the Conservative candidate to bring the group to just one member behind the SNP as the second largest party.
Independent candidate Rob Barsby, from Portknockie, is the only one of the four who stood during the initial poll in 2017.
The final name on the ballot paper is Ian Aitchison, from Rothiemay, who will be representing the Liberal Democrats.
Nine polling places in Portknockie, Cullen, Deskford, Newmill, Grange, Keith and Rothiemay will be used for the election.
The count and declaration will take place in Keith the following day.
