Today is Texas municipal election day for city and school board elections.
The biggest race is for the mayor of Fort Worth. Incumbent Betsy Price is not running for re-election after almost 10 years in office. Ten candidates are hoping to fill her shoes.
In Arlington, voters must decide on a replacement for Mayor Jeff Williams. He cannot run again after serving three terms.
Voters in Plano are also choosing a new mayor because Harry LaRosiliere has served the maximum two terms.
There are city council elections in dozens of cities including Dallas where all 14 seats are up for re-election.
And voters will decide on school board trustees and bond proposals in many districts.
The polls open at 7 a.m. Saturday and close at 7 p.m.
Election results will be announced online
