Pensacola City Council
As Larry B. Johnson did not attain 50%+1 of the vote, this necessitated a run-off election between himself and incumbent Marty Donovan.
John Jerralds was unopposed and was reelected by default.
As incumbent Ronald Townsend did not attain 50%+1 of the vote, this necessitated a run-off election between himself and Jacci Shumaker.
District 8 (At-large)
As Diane Mack did not attain 50%+1 of the vote, this necessitated a run-off election between herself and incumbent Jack Nobles. However, several days after the election, Nobles withdrew from the run-off, conceding the race. Mack was thus elected by default.
District 9 (At-large)
City Council, District 4
City Council, District 7
