Today is the filing deadline for write-in candidates for the May 5 municipal election ballot.
Unlike regular ballot candidates, whose names will be listed on local ballots, write-in candidates’s names must be entered manually by voters during the balloting process.
The filing deadline for regular candidates was Friday.
In local races, 12 have filed for three, at-large Killeen City Council seats, five filed for the Killeen mayoral election, three filed for the Killeen Independent School District board of trustees and three filed for two Harker Heights City Council seats.
