In Chadbourn, interim mayor Donald Ray Bass did not file to run for a full term, choosing instead tom run for town council. Phillip C. Britt was the only candidate to file for mayor. 

The current mayor of Carolina Beach, Dan Wilcox, will be opposed in his re-election race by the former office-holder Bob Lewis. Wilcox defeated Lewis by seven votes to win the seat in 2013.
