Early voting at the Miami Dade Government Center in Miami.

Residents of Miami, Miami Beach, Hialeah and Homestead will head to the polls Tuesday to vote in several hotly contested city council and commission races, some of which are probably headed for runoffs in a couple weeks.

In three of those cities — all but Homestead, which already had its primary Oct. 1 — Tuesday’s results will determine a winner only if a candidate receives more than 50 percent of the vote. Otherwise, the top two finishers in each race will go head to head in runoffs on Nov. 19.
