The annual town election season on the Vineyard is shaping up to be an active one this year, with contests for selectmen and also other elected positions in at least four Island towns.

The deadline for filing nomination papers was Feb. 27 in Edgartown, Oak Bluffs, Tisbury and West Tisbury, where annual town elections will be held in April.

In Edgartown, incumbent selectman Margaret Serpa is seeking a seventh term on the board. She will be challenged by Juliet Mulinare, the town’s former chief procurement officer and current dredge committee administrator, and Joseph Monteio, a restaurant owner and executive chef at the Atlantic restaurant. There is a race for a single seat on the Edgartown board of health, with Meegan Lancaster and Joseph Alstat both seeking election.
