Voters in Copperas Cove will see a lot of familiar names on the ballot when early voting starts Monday for the Nov. 7 election.

All candidates for the Copperas Cove City Council have been council members or on the city’s Economic Development Corporation board at one time.

Candidates in Places 6 and 7 will be vying for three-year seats in Copperas Cove.

Voters in Copperas Cove will also be asked if they would like a municipal development district to possibly replace the Economic Development Corporation. If passed, council members expect to have an election in May to possibly eliminate the EDC.

Five candidates will be seeking three board seats in the Copperas Cove Independent School District. Board secretary Dr. Karen Harrison will be running unopposed in Place 7. Positions in Places 5 and 6 will be up for grabs for a two-year unexpired term and a three-year position, respectively.

In Gatesville, 14 school board candidates will be vying for three at-large seats. There does not appear to be any one item of concern in the district. There is also an 18-year-old running for the school board. Katherine Sullivant’s name will be on the ballot as a school board candidate, but she has pulled out of the race.

In the city of Gatesville, the election for three council members has been canceled as all three candidates are running unopposed.

The election in Nolanville includes one contested race for Seat 5 on the City Council. Incumbent Councilman J. Lynn Bilberry will face off against former mayor and councilman Dennis K. Biggs for the Place 5 seat.

All Texas voters can cast ballots on six state propositions.
