In District 2, Republican incumbent Joe Brazil will run in the primary against Republican Bob Stephens, who owns Compare Automotive Muffler in Wentzville.
District 4 Council incumbent Paul Wynn will face a Republican challenger in Dave Hammond, formerly chief building inspector for St. Charles County.
Michael Lloyd Boyd is unopposed in the Democratic primary for District 4 and will run in November against the winner of the Republican primary in August.

There will be no August primary race for District 6. However, the County Council’s only Democrat, Jerry Daugherty, will face a Republican challenger in November, St. Charles City Councilman Mike Klinghammer, Ward 8.
Before the ballot is finalized, the filings must be certified by the St. Charles County Election Authority to ensure all candidates are eligible to run for the elected offices.
