Incumbent mayor Scott Aitchison almost had it in the bag and was slated to be acclaimed as mayor in Huntsville, that is until Peggy Peterson put her name on the ballot on the last possible day. Aitchison won in 2014 with 45.4 per cent of the vote and Peggy Peterson, an environmentalist, is running a sign-free campaign. There are six candidates competing for three district council positions at the district of Muskoka and there are nine candidates running for five municipal council positions.
